Robert Moreno has got a second win in two games since he took over permanently. Support from Rodrigo Moreno and Paco Alcacer ensured Spain retained their 100 percent record in Euro 2020 qualifying Group F.
The players observed a minute of silence on Sunday as a mark of respect to Luis Enrique. Enrique stepped down from the role of head coach before his daughter’s death at the end of August.
After the win, Moreno gave all the credit to his predecessor Luis Enrique. He dedicated Spain’s 4-0 win over the Faroe Islands to him. Moreno said that the team belonged to Enrique more than to anyone else.
Moreno revealed he was satisfied seeing his players toil at times against a Faroe Islands team that put ten men behind the ball for much of the game. He praised Spain’s goal-scorers.
He said that it was a privilege to have a scorer like Alcacer, who was very good in the area. He added that Rodrigo had also scored two others, and he was happy because the two had succeeded.
The coach also paid tribute to Sergio Ramos, who equaled Iker Casillas’ record of 167 appearances for Spain on the night and said the win, which came after nine changes to the line-up that started in Spain’s 2-1 victory over Romania on Thursday, increased competition for places.
Spain is top of Group F for Euro 2020 qualifying having won all six games to date.
