Spain coach defends Morata after Norway misses

Spain coach defends Morata after Norway misses

24 Mar 2019, 18:00

Spain head coach Luis Enrique dismissed suggestions Alvaro Morata is low on confidence after the Spain striker drew a blank in a 2-1 home win against Norway.

A Dani Ceballos cross provided Morata with his best opportunity to score his first international goal since November 2017 but the striker headed off target but Luis Enrique, though, feels Morata is turning his career around after leaving Stamford Bridge to return to the Spanish capital on loan.

"I see him much better than when he was at Chelsea," Luis Enrique told a news conference. "He has been always great with us but now he is more decisive, keeping the ball at the end of this match for example.

"He did that with confidence. He had many chances and he was where he had to be. He wasn't lucky enough but he had a great match, his best match with us so far.

"It was a complete match where we created many clear chances. We dominated Norway, who tried to attack us from set-pieces.

"We knew the match was going to be like this but I am really happy for team's performance in every way.

"I would like to have scored 50 per cent of our chances and we would have talked about a great result but this is football. We can improve that giving confidence to the players."

Spain got their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign up and running with a victory secured thanks to Sergio Ramos scoring a penalty won by Morata.
