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.”
