SACKED Spain coach Luis Enrique says his side are better than any of the teams in the World Cup semi-finals.
Former Barcelona star Enrique was fired after a last-16 exit at the hands of Morocco at Qatar 2022.
Luis Enrique’s Spain failed to deliver in Qatar
Morocco are the surprise package of the tournament and face defending champions France tomorrow in a semi-final.
The other last-four clash sees Lionel Messi’s Argentina take on Luka Modric’s Croatia today.
Despite the quality left, Enrique believes his young Spanish squad would have been a match for any of them.
He said: “The bad thing about these competitions is that in 90 or 120 minutes everything can go to hell.
“It is evident that we did not play a good game against Morocco but I draw a good conclusion.
“I am very satisfied with what we have done in these four years because we have generated excitement in the national team.
“Could we have done better? Surely, yes. But when you give 100 per cent you have to be satisfied.
“I believe we showed the world a very good image in defeat and that we knew how to lose.
“Morocco were very defensive against us but deserved their victory.
“But I feel that we have lost a very good opportunity. I look at the semi-finalists and I don’t see any of them is better than us.”
