Juan Santisteban (ESP), Spain coach
"There are no easy or straightforward games. When it's 11 versus 11, whether there's a difference in quality or not, as long as teams fight and compete then the match will be tight. That's what happened today against Honduras, and though I'm happy to have won the game there are things we need to work on. They made life very difficult for us, but they will also make it tough for our other group rivals."
