Alvaro Morata after Spain vs. Germany 0-0

Spain vs. Germany: Alvaro Morata remained optimistic despite Spain’s late draw with Germany in World Cup Group E, stating they were up against a “great squad.”

Morata came off the bench to give Spain the lead after an hour of what seemed to be another dominating performance. However, Spain let Germany back into the game late in the match, and Die Mannschaft punished Spain with their substitutions.

Niclas Fullkrug scored an equalizer in the 83rd minute to clinch a 1-1 draw and boost Germany’s hopes of advancing to the knockout round.

Morata, speaking to the Media after the final buzzer, seemed unconcerned with his team’s loss of the lead: “It was a difficult game. Germany has a wonderful squad, and the game was fantastic.

“It was two sides that might have been in a World Cup semifinal or final,” he continued.

When questioned about his role, the 30-year-old said that he was unconcerned about coming off the bench “I was instructed to play like I always do, to keep the team helping the ball and to attack the open areas. That is my occupation.

“Coming off the bench is equivalent to starting, and the most important thing is to win.”

Due to a late concession, Spain now leads Group E with only four points. On matchday three, La Roja faces Japan, who showed their ability to defeat giants by defeating Germany in their tournament opener.

“Japan is a difficult squad,” Morata remarked. “They run a lot and have excellent tactics.” It is another difficult match, but we are in the World Cup, where every match is wild.”

Spain can help Germany advance by defeating Japan, meaning Hansi Flick’s squad has to defeat Costa Rica.
