Laporte: "We have everything to be world champions"

The City center-back comes out in defense of the defense and exhibits the quality of the 'Red' before the debut against Costa Rica

MADRID, 21 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Spanish international Aymeric Laporte affirmed that the national team has "everything" to be able to win the World Cup in Qatar, which will take place until December 18, and defended the quality of the defense and the rest of the players before this debut Wednesday (5:00 p.m., Spanish peninsular time) against Costa Rica in Doha.

"World champions? And why not? Each one has their strong points. We have a great selection, in which the majority compete at the highest level everywhere. We have quality, with the coach working very well, we have it everything. In this type of tournament luck and other factors are needed, but whatever depends on us we will do everything to win," he said at a press conference.

Laporte pointed out that Spain is "very well" after the friendly against Jordan and that it is already "very focused" on Wednesday's game. "The heat affects one more and others less. We are not used to this climate. We are all going to be ready for the first game," he stressed.

The requirement for Luis Enrique's group in Qatar 2022 must be, according to him, to continue with the philosophy of good football to go "the further the better". "I have played the last games of the 'Premier' and many of the 'Champions'. The other day I played the friendly and I feel very well, and I hope it is reflected in the World Cup", he wished.

In this sense, the central defender of French origin assured that the knee injury he suffered before the summer is now a thing of the past. "I returned in perfect condition, although you never have the certainty that they are going to call you for this World Cup. I have done well and those of us who are here have fought and we deserve to be here," he stressed.

He explained that he uses social networks to be "closer" to the fans and said he had not heard or read that defense is Spain's weak point. "I only know that we have made a great European and we were almost the same. Whatever depends on us we are going to show that, perhaps, they can be wrong. I have not read or listened to the criticism at the defense level. The ones I have seen have been for the team in general. We are going to try to be a very strong selection in attack and defense and, with results, it is easier to combat these criticisms", he argued.

Laporte assured that he does not "prefer" as a partner in the central axis of the defense and that Rodri, who has played in the middle of the rear for City, brings "a lot of self-confidence" and output with the ball. "All of us who are here feel important. It's flattering to hear that, you always have to show it and fight every day for the position and try to do your best to play," he said, alluding to the fact that the press considers him a 'fix' in the defense.

Regarding Costa Rica, he revealed that until Tuesday they will not see videos about his way of playing, but he warned of its danger. "On paper they may have less of a name, but in these games you're up against a nation and it's not easy to get the result out," she said.

Likewise, he highlighted the level of Brazil, one of the favorites and possible rival in the quarterfinals of the Spanish team. "Brazil has many great soccer players. They have two per position who are incredible, but these matches between nations depend on many things," he insisted on external factors.
