Rodri won the season’s fourth title and was once again the best player in the final.
After defeating Croatia in the League of Nations final on Sunday, Spain’s international midfielder Rodrigo Hernández stated that the squad had “returned Spain to the highest ranks.”
” We have restored Spain to the highest echelons. After such a long time… “We’re happy because it’s been a long time,” Rodri told TVE.
“It was a very difficult game against probably some of the best teams in the world right now,” the Manchester City midfielder says of the match against Croatia.
” We did it, how could it be otherwise, suffering because football is so expensive?” “Winning costs a lot, but this generation promises a lot,” he continued.
“The effort has been enormous. We had trust till the very end of the competition. There are really young kids giving of themselves till the finish, even mentally… Penalties… ‘Chapeau’ for the squad,” he said.
“We know that it is a team that leads you to this; 0-0 is worth it until the end,” he added of Croatia. Obviously, we’ve been psychologically tough. They have one of the finest teams in the world; the systems are very well-functioning, and they have players who have been playing together for a long time.”
“Obviously, there will be improvements in the future, but this is the first step.” “Winning gives you the confidence to keep winning,” he explained.
According to the Madrid midfielder, “there are no discussions or discussions about the project” (via Luis de la Fuente). “We formed a team and decided to compete in every tournament, which we did.” We must rejoice. “We need to put aside our differences and celebrate,” he remarked.
Rodri: Mr. MVP
Rodri Hernández was named best man of the match and most valuable player in the third edition of the League of Nations, continuing a streak of individual recognition that began with the Champions League final against Manchester City and has been extended in the two games in Spain with which he concludes the season.
Rodri got the final and tournament awards after being chosen the best player in the semifinal, in which the Spanish team defeated Italy. Despite the season’s heavy workload, Rodri led Spain’s game, came close to scoring twice, and did not miss his penalty in the final shootout.
