Breathing the air of the village in Tokyo was a relief. The days before ‘Covid jail’ were hard.

From the source it is always didactic. Restless, curious, wanting to always learn in his life, he squeezes every moment of his experiences to give meaning to his ideas. It is a type of sports center in the strictest sense of the word. There are soccer people who discard other inbound sports on their roadmap. Luis de la Fuente, do not. Quite the opposite.

Spain reaches the quarterfinals with good football, with absolute governance of the game, but with a remarkable lack of aim. As a consolation, the blur of definition cannot be repeated many times. Oyarzábal or Dani Olmo, who had this Wednesday against Argentina, occasions of all colors. Spain made life difficult, drew a tight 1-1 despite going over his rival at all times. Suffer to enjoy, José Antonio Camacho always said as the motto of his libretto. But Spain always suffers for little moments that should not exist. Because his dominance of the game is often insulting.

Ivory Coast will be the next enemy. A selection where all its players, except its goalkeeper Eliezer Ira, play outside their country and stand out in Europe. Your look for insignia is Franck Kessie.

Brazil has given the rush to Richarlison and Spain also has the opportunity to focus on footballers such as Cucurella, Mikel Merino or Rafa Mir, who were not in the Eurocup at the orders of Luis Enrique.

Gold is expensive. But it gives credit and prestige. Kiko He always tells it. That goal of his in the final of Barcelona ’92 Against Poland it was the goal that helped him to be a footballer.
