its typical Spanish they are the world champion of qualifications games. They won EC they get arrogant. So what, Greece and Denmark won the EC too, are they big teams? i don't think so . at the world cup you will see the big team in the Final.

Actually we will play again. So now we see how much we improved from last match. I knew Italy will beat Spain easily but I don't think so they can beat us easily. Anyway we looking forward a good match. We hope who is better will win.
