Spain Respects Wales, Thiago Says Ahead of Friendly

CARDIFF, Wales – Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara said on Wednesday that La Roja is not underestimating Wales ahead of this week’s friendly in Cardiff.

“This friendly is enough motivation given the high skill level they have displayed over the past years,” he said on the eve of the match. “I think it will be very nice beyond the defensive aspect they may have.”

When questioned about changes to the Spanish national side since their knockout-stage elimination from the 2018 World Cup, he said that, while there have been minor adjustments, “coaches always favor a possession-oriented style” and the capacity to “produce chances.”

Spain coach Luis Enrique said that the absence of star striker Gareth Bale from the Welsh squad represents no change in his planning for Thursday’s friendly in Cardiff.

Bale, 29, will be missing the match due to “muscular fatigue,” Wales coach Ryan Giggs said.

“Bale’s absence is sad, but it doesn’t change things for us,” the Spain coach said, adding that they have been watching a Wales side that includes the player, whom the team uses to make the best of their skills.

“If he doesn’t play, it affects them,” he said. “We are in a process of not wasting any game.”
