Spain play their first game under former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique on Saturday away to England in their opening match of the UEFA Nations League before hosting Croatia on Tuesday.

But a question from an El Pais journalist, who asked about Spain's tactics against teams that defend deep, was met with a sharp response from Isco.

"I really like the appointment of Luis Enrique for that reason", he says.

"We have the same objective, which is to take this national team to a higher level".

The former Barcelona boss takes charge for the first time in Spain's Nations League opener away to England on Saturday after crashing out at the last 16 of the World Cup to hosts Russian Federation.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is confident he has the support of Spain coach Luis Enrique.

Rescue operations were on until late night. "The rest of the investigation will be done later", the minister added. If they were there during the collapse, it is possible that something unfortunate may have happened to them.

It was the same situation as happened in November, 2016, when he had his first call up due to an injury to Costa and his response was a fine goal at Wembley when he came on in the second half with Spain two goals down at the time against England.

"I never go onto the pitch with the intention of injuring another professional so I have a very clear conscience", he said.

Luis Enrique announced his decision to leave as Barcelona manager previous year.

With former coach Julen Lopetegui axed on the eve of the tournament having agreed to take over at Real Madrid following the finals, Fernando Hierro was placed in charge. Spain got crashed out of the World Cup after being defeated in penalties against hosts Russian Federation. I still feel very young, full of hope, and I'm keen to keep winning more things with Spain.

He has of course got a great personality and a great presence on the pitch. "Then, we will see if we can find spaces to do what we want to do". We try to evolve our model.
