Spain vs Germany live updates: Euro 2024 match team news, predictions and line-ups

And clearly Spain manager Luis de la Fuente is in agreement over the size of today’s game.

“It could have been the final of the European Championship, and it’ll be an even game on a footballing level,” he said. “Germany always start games in a really powerful way, so obviously we’ll try to counteract that. We’ll try to take the initiative and go all-out from the first minute.

“These are two giant powers of European football and the first thing I’d say about my team is that one of our great strengths is that we always perform as one unified block. In that respect, us and Germany are in fact quite similar.

“I wouldn’t change my players for anyone in the world. For me, my players are the best in the world. We’re fully prepared to go out there and try to win. We feel lots of responsibility, and we’re extremely focused.”
