Casillas: Philosophy and winning key

Iker Casillas has reflected on the importance of Spain continuing their playing philosophy regardless of opponents, and that they win.

La Roja were impressive in their opening match of this summer’s Confederations Cup, defeating Uruguay 2-1 on Sunday, and head into Thursday night’s meeting with Tahiti expected to pick up another three points that could be enough for progression to the semi-finals.

“Against Uruguay I saw the team the same as always,” reflected Casillas at a promotional event this week.

“We have had better and worse moments, but the team continues its trajectory and game plan Things can go right or wrong, but we have the same identity.

“The main thing against Tahiti is to win and to progress to the next round. What matters is that we win and get the six points to continue with confidence.”

The captain was asked for comment on the Under-21s’ success in retaining the European Championship in Israel earlier this week.

“Congratulations wholeheartedly, from me and the whole group. We have an assured future, but we must keep fighting to bring happiness.”
