Luis Enrique seeks to show further improvements of young Spanish side
La Furia Roja looks very different to the squad that brought so much cheer to Spain only a decade ago, and yet, coach Luis Enrique commits to very similar methods that delivered two Euros and the 2010 World Cup. It’s all about short, crisp passes that keep possession, work moves into the box, and wait for goals to present themselves. That said, Enrique has infused a greater focus on fitness and endurance for major tournaments.
To achieve the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification, Spain had to overcome Sweden, Greece, Georgia, and Kosovo doing so with six wins, one draw, and one loss. At Euro 2020, held in 2021, Spain came second best to Sweden in Group E and bowed out in the Round of 16 alongside their Scandinavian foes. So, they got their own back to earn their Qatar 2022 dates.
There’s a great amount of young talent in the Spanish squad, with the average age of recent squads amounting to just under 27 years of age. As such, there’s a belief that the latest outings will only be improved upon, with the likes of Pedri, Gavi, Ansu Fati, Ferrán Torres, Pedro Porro, and Eric García continuing to develop their athleticism and skill.
Hansi Flick will tell Germany to be relentless
Hans Dieter-Flick has the unenviable task of quickly transforming the German national team back into the powerhouse of his predecessor’s, Joachim Löw, heyday. Since taking the post in August 2021, Flick’s taken the bull by the horns, pushing his teams to always be on their toes, putting pressure on their opponents across the field, holding a very high line, and forcing mistakes.
With the new boss at the helm for seven of the team’s FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, Die Mannschaft stormed through an admittedly quaint group, winning nine, losing one, and scoring 36 goals. They’ll look to show immediate improvements on the Round of 16 exit from Euro 2020 and close in on the 2014 World Cup win.
Joshua Kimmich is the most integral piece to Flick’s Germany, and yet, his subtle ability to dictate proceedings won’t be what catch the headlines: those will likely fall to the speedy, pestering forwards Kai Havertz, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané, and Timo Werner. Of course, Thomas Müller may also be lurking to add to his current record of 44 goals in 116 caps.
