The Road To Brazil Begins For Spain This Week

Spain begins it’s World Cup qualifying campaign this week in Georgia and Iker Casillas feels it is vital that the defending champions get this new qualifying campaign off to a winning start.

“We need to get the three points because we have some important games coming up, so we have to beat Georgia as they have already got a win under their belt and we must hit the ground running” said Casillas.

“It would be very important if we could follow it up with another victory against Belarus before the game with France at the Vicente Calderon. It would be a good way to keep us on track.”

However, Casillas says he just wants to concentrate on the Georgia game for now.

“The most important game is the one tomorrow. We know about their goalkeeper, who was great in their last game, and we are also aware of Jano Ananidze and Levan Mchedlidze, who are very good players I can assure you.”

Finally, Casillas promised that Spain would not be changing the style of play that has been so successful over the past few years, saying that any new players coming in would need to adapt.

“The national team has had its own style for a long time. That will remain and I don’t think we’ll be altering it.

“If other players arrive then they’ll have to get used to it,” he concluded.
