The former FC Barcelona mentor will be in charge of his first match with the Spanish national team since the disappointment of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, when La Furia Roja take on England in the UEFA Nations League.

Ramos went on to lift the trophy for a third successive year as Madrid ran out 3-1 winners but found himself accused of setting out to deliberately injure Liverpool's key man.

"I think their game will be based on pace and pressing", he says. I'm not going to be affected by that at all.

Aspas denied that the players rebelled in Russian Federation under Fernando Hierro as interim coach.

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos claims his "conscience is clear" following the saga surrounding his game-ending challenge on Mohamed Salah during last season's Champions League final.

"This first contact this week has been really good and really positive despite speculation of us both having very strong characters". Ramos was however unwilling to add more fuel to the controversy.

However, while attention has been focused on the role in between the sticks, Enrique feels the more pressing issue at hand is taking Spain to the next level beyond the widely known "tiki-taka" style of play which hindered their performances in Russian Federation.

With European Championship wins in 2008 and 2012 sandwiching their World Cup success, Spain set the benchmark for some years - but Enrique admits they must hone their craft to return to the summit.

He has of course got a great personality and a great presence on the pitch.
