Spain head coach Luis de la Fuente says La Roja has been handed the toughest draw in the Euro 2024 group stage.
The draw for the Euro 2024 group stage took place in Hamburg on Saturday evening. Spain has been drawn against Italy, Croatia, and Albania in Group B.
Spain won this competition in 2008 and 2012, and they have only lost two of their last 22 matches at Euros.
After the Euro 2024 draw ceremony, de la Fuente told reporters: “The level is very high. All the groups are tough, complex, but ours may be the highest level.
“There are other complicated ones. like France and the Netherlands [in Group D], but I think ours is the most complex.
“We are playing in a European Championship. and we all know that the difficulty is at the maximum, including for teams playing against Spain.
“But that will make us concentrate from the first moment. We know perfectly how to play Italy and Croatia, and Albania are a very dangerous team.
“Italy was not in the favourites’ pot, but it was guaranteed that no one wanted them. Their potential is better than the moment they are going through.”
