‘Spain making teams look worse’

Alvaro Morata claims Spain are “making teams look worse than they actually are” after Saturday’s 5-0 demolition of Costa Rica.

Morata scored Spain’s second goal in the first of their warmup games for the World Cup next summer, and the Chelsea striker praised his country for another dominant performance, as well as singling out the ‘phenomenal’ Isco.

“Lately we’ve been making teams look worse than they actually are,” he said after the game.

“We had a great game against Italy and the same tonight. It’s good when this team start playing.

“Coming here fills you with pride, but you have to keep working hard. Isco? He’s a phenomenon and this is his home, his area, and as long as he’s happy, so are the rest of us.

“Injury to Isco? I think it’s just a knock.”
