Spain meets Germany at the World Cup.

Coach Luis Enrique has threatened striker Ferran Torres, who is with his daughter, with being substituted if he makes the pacifier cheer.

Doha – pacifier cheers against Germany?

If the DFB-Elf meets Spain at the 2022 World Cup on Sunday (8 p.m.), there could be a strange situation in the Spanish team.

That has to do with the family relationships in the team of national coach Luis Enrique.

Because his daughter Sira Martinez is in a relationship with one of his players.

Pacifier cheers at the World Cup against Germany?

Spain coach Luis Enrique threatens Ferran Torres with substitution

Luis Enrique has jokingly threatened his striker and potential son-in-law Ferran Torres if he makes him a grandfather.

In the video livestream with fans on Twitch, the 52-year-old was asked how he would react if Torres showed the pacifier cheer after a goal.

"When Ferran Torres scores, I'm very happy.

If he made this gesture with the pacifier, I would replace him on the spot, sit in the stands and he wouldn't step on the pitch again," assured Luis Enrique energetically before the World Cup duel against Germany, but then with a smile.

World Cup 2022: Spain ace Ferran Torres loves the daughter of his national coach Luis Enrique

Footballers like to refer to the pregnancy of their wife or girlfriend with the pacifier cheer.

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.

Possibly also to be closer to his loved ones.

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.

Germany trembles before Spain: Ferran Torres scored twice at the start of the World Cup

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.

Hansi, these three players have to go against Spain

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.

World Cup 2022: Germany before the final against Spain – bad memories of the 0: 6 debacle

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.
