My conscience is clear about Salah - Sergio Ramos

Ramos who will be playing today in a game between Spain and England, might face some criticism from Liverpool fans during the game which will take place in England. I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch.

David de Gea starts in goal for Spain in Luis Enrique's first game at the helm, despite some pre-match clamour for Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga to get the nod between the posts.

England take on Spain in a Nations League game, in their first home match since returning from the World Cup in Russian Federation. Their talents are unique to them, there aren't many players like that, so I think the challenge for Luis Enrique is to create more of a collective - and make that collective play in a way that ensures they can cope without those big players.

A former Barcelona boss, there was plenty of speculation that Enrique's appointment would spell the end of Ramos' global involvement.

"We have the same objective, which is to take this national team to a higher level".

He brought through a new generation of young players and of course, many of those players went on to win the European Championship in 2008 and the World Cup in 2010.

"Being a captain in the national team is because, among internationals available, you are the player with the most personality team", Luis Enrique a media conference.

"He has great personality and presence".

Luis Enrique believes his most pressing challenge as Spain coach is to evolve the team from the possession-focused identity, widely dubbed "tiki-taka", that saw them fail to breach a limited Russian Federation side and ultimately lose on penalties in the World Cup round of 16 despite enjoying 75 percent of the ball. "We had a lot of laughs, it was fun", said Isco, who called Enrique a winning coach with "a lot of character".

"I have already spoken about evolving the model in my presentation and that is what we are working on. The aim is to evolve".
