Dani Ceballos has lamented Spain’s first half ‘disaster’ in their defeat to England on Tuesday night a they found themselves 3-0 down at half-time.
The Real Madrid midfielder only appeared as a second half substitute and despite La Roja recovering two goals – including one assisted by Ceballos – they fell to defeat.
“The first half was a disaster, it was difficult to recover,” Ceballos told reporters after the match, as cited by Marca.
“We were told by the Coach to replicate the performances of previous matches, to play as we had worked on but we could not do it.
“We should have had a penalty, it was obvious. It should have been a red card too, but sometimes the referee does not make the right decision.
“We must try and forget this game and move on, we now must go to Croatia to win and recover our form as quickly as possible.”
