Spain are getting tired of their last World Cup runs. Defending champion eliminated in the group stage in Brazil in 2014, La Roja was eliminated in the round of 16 in Russia (2018) and therefore this year in Qatar. What provoke the ire of the local media and especially the questioning of the position of coach occupied by Luis Enrique.

The latter has not yet decided on his future, but four candidates are already ready to succeed him. In the meantime, if his players will not lift the World Cup on December 18, they have just succeeded the Belgians for the title of champions of the seum. Several of them did not digest this defeat against a Morocco not particularly flamboyant in the game, but so solid collectively.

“It's the reality, even if it annoys us”

“Yes, it was complicated. They were very organized in defense and united. And the lawn did not help to do checks. They were very hardworking, all behind. We had chances, but we couldn't score,”, said Marcos Llorente in comments relayed by AS. “We were superior for the 120 minutes of the game, we cornered them in their own half. But that doesn't mean that we were better now if we didn't score. There are surprises at every World Cup. There is a lot of defensive level in teams like Morocco. We did not expect to be eliminated by Morocco. But it's the reality, even if it annoys us, we have to go home,”, commented goalkeeper Unai Simon.

A very bitter defeat. And the bitter reactions followed one another. “We are touched by the loss, I think we did not deserve it because we were superior. I don't like to talk about refereeing, but it's true that sometimes we played against twelve , released an annoyed Ferran Torres. Finally, it was Rodri who concluded this sequence of frustration. “We were expecting to see eleven guys grouped together on defense, like they do every time we play them. Football is sometimes cruel. Football does not want to know anything in terms of justice. What matters is if the ball goes into the goal. » Annoyed, upset, the Spaniards have not finished ruminating.
