Luis Enrique tasked with finding Spain's sweet spot

Luis Enrique Spain 2018

Ramos spoke ahead of Spain's clash with England on Saturday.

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.

"This is my style and I don't care if you don't like it", he said.

"I don't know what's going to happen in the future but that's a position I haven't had any doubts about", Enrique said. I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch.

Spain won three major tournaments in a row at Euro 2008 and 2012 either side of a maiden World Cup win in 2010.

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

Sergio Ramos will lead Spain out at Wembley, and Enrique hopes he will be able to call upon the services of the Real Madrid stalwart for long into the future.

Coaches appear to be linking players' lack of focus in matches to their obsession with cellphones and social media, with Enrique joining Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola as managers dishing out sanctions and regulations with regards to players' use of cellphones.

Despite controlling the possession and dictating the play, Spain lacked incisiveness and defensive tenacity, which resulted in their failure to ease past defensive lines.

"This first contact this week has been really good and really positive despite speculation of us both having very strong characters".

" I know there will be difficulties and challenges but it is just great to be here".

Ramos said that it was the job of the current squad to restore Spain to the heights that saw them triumph in three consecutive worldwide tournaments - the European championships of 2008 and 2012 and the World Cup of 2010.

"Of course we try to do different things", he added. Then we see if we are efficient enough.
