  • Enrique: Wembley Perfect Venue For My Debut As Spain Coach

I want to keep winning but I want to always be in the first XI.

Now, Luis Enrique is in charge but he won't have the likes of Andres Iniesta and David Silva to call upon after they both retired from worldwide football.

The team will also reportedly avoid stopovers in Madrid between games, a normal procedure that allowed players to meet with family and relatives.

The "Luis Enrique era" is beginning with changes for Spain's national team, and not only on the field.

Spain's new manager Luis Enrique is meanwhile renowned as a spiky character, and there had been some suggestions he and Ramos might not see eye to eye.

So far, Enrique's players were not complaining.

"We had to find clues and solve riddles", Isco told a news conference on Thursday. "Not having cellphones during meals seems like a good idea to me".

"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", Ramos added.

Enrique appears to be concentrating on bringing the players closer and building greater camaraderie within the group.

"It went well, it allowed us to disconnect (from their routine) a bit".

"In the Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking we have gone down a few positions", he said.

When the fixture was announced in May, as part of the inaugural UEFA Nations League, few would have expected it to be the visitors confronting questions about style, youth and an underperforming goalkeeper, following a humiliating World Cup exit.

Overall there are six changes from the side that was dispiritingly knocked out of the World Cup on penalties by hosts Russian Federation in the last 16.

Luis Enrique will have shocked some with his starting XI for Saturday night's UEFA Nations League match against England, with just five players from the line-up against Russian Federation in the World Cup last 16 retaining their spot.
