Luis Enrique tasked with finding Spain's sweet spot

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos said there was renewed enthusiasm around the squad since Luis Enrique, who was a serial victor during his three seasons in charge of Barcelona, had taken over.

Calls for De Gea to lose his place intensified throughout Spain's disappointing World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, most notably after he allowed a tame Cristiano Ronaldo shot to squirm through his hands during a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal in the group stage. "I think I played well against Atletico Madrid and this gave me the opportunity".

England have just three victories over Spain in their last 12 meetings, but are on their best ever unbeaten stretch at Wembley having won 14 successive games.

Like a general inspecting his troops, new Spain coach Luis Enrique stood on a makeshift platform and attentively watched as his players practiced below on a recent hot morning in Madrid.

There have been some suggestions that Luis Enrique has been brought in to oust the long-serving captain, but both denied this."Maybe this was said because both of us have very strong characters", Ramos said.

Over 35% in India low on physical activity
Yet among the global population, one in three women (32 percent) and one in four men (23 percent) fail to meet these requirements. The WHO said that there has been little progress worldwide in improving physical activity levels between 2001 and 2016.

Luis Enrique has used Cesar Azpilicueta of Chelsea and Dani Carvajal of Real Madrid in the right-back berth during training sessions this week.

One of the biggest questions facing Spain right now is how, exactly, they replace Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta and David Silva following their global retirements. It was April 2016 and Luis Enrique was asked if he felt sorry for berating a journalist, who had been critical of Barcelona's fitness levels. "Everyone in football knew what they were looking for when they went for this coaching team".

"I know I was among the candidates to go as full-back". I am not really concerned about that.

Sergio Ramos said he feels young and wants to continue winning with the national team. Spain has disappointed in the last two World Cups, losing in the group stage and the round of 16.
