Luis Enrique wants unpredictable Spain

Overall there are six changes from the side that was dispiritingly knocked out of the World Cup on penalties by hosts Russian Federation in the last 16. I am delighted with him.

"I know the English fans will treat players as they deserve and I'm not anxious about that in the slightest". "I think their game will be based on pace and pressing", he says.

After the retirement of David Silva, Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta, the former Barcelona coach would need to guide the team from scratch.

Enrique also has taken away the free afternoons that were usually given to players in the team's training camp, and has warned them not to spend too much time playing cards or video games, according to Spanish media.

However, Ramos said there was renewed enthusiasm around the squad since Luis Enrique, who was a serial victor during his three seasons in charge of Barcelona, had take over.

Clotet, who coached in Espanyol's reserves while Luis Enrique was in charge of the Barcelona B team a decade ago, believes the 48-year-old is the ideal man to blood the next generation of Spanish talent.

"Of course, I didn't really know him personally".

Ramos said that it was the job of the current squad to restore Spain to the heights that saw them triumph in three consecutive worldwide tournaments - the European championships of 2008 and 2012 and the World Cup of 2010. I act based on the team's needs. I want to keep winning but I want to always be in the first XI.

Many coaches have struggled with the welcome problem of where to place Isco and it appears that Luis Enrique believes he can be useful in attack, ahead of the other three midfielders.

So far, Enrique's players were not complaining.

It's been a stark change to how things were conducted under Julen Lopetegui, the coach fired two days before the World Cup for accepting a job with Real Madrid without telling federation officials in advance.
