Carlos Soler: "Going into the locker room and seeing Messi, Neymar and Mbappé? Like anyone else: 'Good morning, good morning'"

It bothers him, it has been very evident, that the press has focused on the 10 minutes where Japan passed over his team.

They asked him first if it was forbidden to give a 'kick' when the rival presses.

And then came the "accusations" of topicazos, something he said several times.

Someone said that if his team lacked trade.

"That's a cliché!

For the rest, and in this old version of Luis Enrique, actually the one we have seen the most times, he has confirmed that he has all the players available (even Azpilicueta) and has said that both he and his team are in a state of mind optimal to face the game against Morocco, "the strongest team in the World Cup right now".
