SOT, Isco, Spanish football player (Spanish): “Something happened, but well, the team’s hope is bigger than anything that happened. We are very concentrated, very motivated. This is a World Cup, and it’s every four years, and it’s very difficult to be here, so we have to keep distance from what happens outside, focus on the field, on the trainings, and on doing things right. We are looking forward to the second game, to giving good news, and to winning.”

W/S Presser *CUTAWAY*

SOT, Isco, Spanish football player (Spanish): “We feel very relieved knowing that when we are attacked, there is Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Carvajal, Jordi Alba, Nacho. We are very happy with our defence, with their work. They help us a lot because, apart from defending, they also take the ball out really well, so they make everything much easier.”
