Aspas reveals Morata friendship

Iago Aspas believes his personal friendship with Alvaro Morata allows them to thrive while playing together on the pitch.

The Celta Vigo striker came off the bench in Tuesday’s 8-0 win in Liechtenstein to net twice alongside the Chelsea frontman, who had already netted a brace.

“Me and Alvaro get along really well outside of football and we are friends, so hopefully that helps on the pitch,” Aspas told Movistar+ in the aftermath of the match.

“It is a shame that neither of us scored a hat-trick but the important thing was that we won and played really well.

“The Coach reiterated to us what happened to France (a 0-0 draw against Luxembourg) – which meant we knew we had to have a great game without losing our focus and we tried to score as many goals as we could.”
