Spain get the Luis Enrique era started against England at Wembley in the Nations League on Saturday, with the former Barca coach succeeding Julen Lopetegui following his pre-World Cup dismissal.

Real Madrid and Spanish midfielder, Isco lost his temper after a reporter asked a question about Spain's failure in the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

"We're the ones playing on the pitch for the national team but we need people around us who are helpful instead of putting obstacles in the way constantly as that offers nothing". "After that, we will see if we can be effective and not so predictable".

"He (Ramos) is the captain because he is the most capped player in our national team", Enrique said.

The Real Madrid defender may have been a regular adversary of Luis Enrique during the coach's time in charge at Camp Nou, but that is not clouding the 48-year-old's opinion of the centre-back.

Montoya was selected for the Spanish squad by Vicente Del Bosque and was on Julen Lopetegui's initial longlist for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. "I feel important. I'm comfortable with the great players we have".

"In the last few years Spain have dropped a couple of levels and our objective is to recover what made us win in the first place", Ramos told a news conference yesterday. "They will pose us a lot of problems and we're delighted to be here. We want the world to fall in love with us again".

Changes which are already in motion according to Sergio Ramos, who added: "The boss has asked us to pay more attention this week because everything was new so we've had days of team talks, lots of dialogue and lots of work".

"I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch, of course, so my conscience is really clear about what I did that night. I think I played well against Atletico Madrid and this gave me the opportunity".
