Spain celebrated a dream start to the 2022 World Cup with a 7-0 win. Among the scorers is a player who has a relationship with Spain's national coach.

Munich

– Luis Enrique is in a bind.

When the Spain coach chooses his starting XI for the 2022 World Cup, he may also have his own family in mind.

Because Enrique's daughter Sira Martinez is in a relationship with a national player.

And what father would want to say no to his daughter?

National coach: Luis Enrique

World Cup in Qatar: Torres has been in a relationship with Enrique's daughter since 2021

"If I could choose who would be my extended arm on the field, I would say Ferran - otherwise my daughter would probably tear my head off..." Enrique joked at a press conference ahead of the Spaniards' World Cup opener against Costa Rica.

Ferran Torres and Enrique's daughter have been a couple since mid-2021.

At that time, the offensive player was still under contract with Manchester City, last summer he switched to FC Barcelona.

World Cup in Qatar: Spain convinces at the start of the World Cup

Since then, the Spaniard has been even more closely watched by his father-in-law-to-be.

Incidentally, Torres has no problem with that.

"I don't see that as extra pressure!

The Mister and I can distinguish when it's about the family and when it's about the national coach and players.

We deal with it quite naturally,” says the 22-year-old.

And obviously the strange relationship doesn't hurt either.

At the start of the World Cup, Enrique relied on Torres from the start and he promptly repaid the trust.

In the convincing 7-0 win against Costa Rica, number eleven of "La Roja" scored twice.

In general, the Spaniards are in top form again after the upheaval of the past few years.

According to Torres, one reason for this is national coach Enrique.

“I consider him my father, he is like our father.

When I joined the national team, he put all his trust in me.

Every player wants that,” says Torres.

The Spaniards meet Germany on Sunday.

For the DFB-Elf it's about everything.

In the event of a defeat, the end of the group phase would probably no longer be averted.

The defensive around Antonio Rüdiger, who was exposed to international malice after the Japan game, should also look at Torres.

In the bitter 0: 6 debacle two years ago, the offensive player was also in the starting XI and scored a three-pack.

Of course he would like to do that again on Sunday.

With the support of Enrique and his daughter, who, like the English players' wives, is also staying in Qatar at the moment.
