I should have killed the players - Luis Enrique

Spain coach Luis Enrique has revealed he wasn't happy with the outcome of the game against England Yesterday.

Though Spain enjoyed much possession against England yesterday, they still lost the game by 3:2. Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for England and Marcus Rashford doubled their lead before Sterling grabs his second of the night in 38min before half-time.

Spain came back strong in the second half and pulled one back through Paco Alcacer and Spain couldn't unlock England's defence again not until extra time where Sergio Ramos was able to grab another.

Luis Enrique wasn't really happy with the result and revealed the team made a lot of individual errors and that the first goal killed them.

'The first half, atrocious, it has to be recognized. We arrived late pressing, the first goal killed us,' Enrique said

'We made so many individual errors. It's bad to say it, but it was a miracle in the break.'

'The normal thing would have been to kill the players, but I reinforced them, and didn't change any of them.'

'With 2-0, sitting back and coming out on the break, England are dangerous. A group with two World Cup semi-finalists is not easy.'

'Now we continue to depend on ourselves, we have to go to Croatia and win [ to win the group].'

'I said great teams have suffered. We forced the opposition back, and it's a shame we didn't score earlier because we would have done the 3-3 and the comeback in the Villamarin.'
