Spain coach says he has no doubts about goalkeeper De Gea

Spain won three major tournaments in a row at Euro 2008 and 2012 either side of a maiden World Cup win in 2010. Hierro was in temporary charge after Spain fired Julen Lopetegui right before the 2018 World Cup.

Calls for De Gea to lose his place intensified throughout Spain's disappointing World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, most notably after he allowed a tame Cristiano Ronaldo shot to squirm through his hands during a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal in the group stage.

Enrique's men will square off against The Three Lions in both teams' opening Group 4 match of the inaugural UEFA Nations League, a biennial worldwide football competition.

Harry Kane has rubbished the claim Sergio Ramos deliberately tried to injure Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final.

I have a clear conscience.

The head coach also showered praise on Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, saying he has the strongest personality and presence of any player on the national team. "It doesn't matter to me". I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch.

"I'm not really concerned about the fans reaction".

He might be glad that Madrid didn't get drawn against Liverpool in the Champions League, though. My conscience is very clear.

"We have to evolve that idea, flawless it, make it even better, so we can surprise opponents and they don't know how we will play", he said upon taking over at Barcelona. "I am not anxious about that in the slightest".

"In the last few years Spain have dropped a couple of levels and our objective is to recover what made us win in the first place", Ramos told a news conference on Friday.

The new coach's press appearances so far suggest he will carry that same edge felt by the journalist two years ago into worldwide management, and it remains to be seen whether it proves a source of unification or alienation amongst his players.
