4 years ago

Xabi Alonso made an appearance in front of the media and stressed that there was good feeling during these first days of the Spanish squads pre-tournament training and that the ambition was still there. "The level of training is good and theres a positive feeling. Were happy with how things are going. If we are hungry for it, have the passion and the team is motivated, we can deal with any physical problems there might be", commented the Real Madrid player.

The Spanish teams midfielder acknowledges that some players are coming to the continental tournament somewhat run down. "The season at club level has been very intense. We were battling for the primary objectives right to the end but weve had some time to disconnect a bit, and now Im fine physically. The coach is quite happy with what hes seen up to now and the players are in good shape to face the European Cup", said Xabi Alonso.

In addition to Germany, Xabi Alonso tips other teams such as France and England as potential rivals in the fight for the title. "Without a doubt, France and England could be in the mix of possible teams with the potential to battle it out to the final. They have players with the necessary competitive gene to win, together with the history that you need and, even though theres not so much noise being made about them, they could go far", he explained.
