MADRID, 27 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Spanish international Rodrigo Hernández 'Rodri' regretted that Germany's goal in the draw (1-1) on the second day of the Qatar 2022 World Cup "could have been avoided", but stressed that the point achieved is "very valuable" to confirm against Japan qualifying for the round of 16.
"The goal is true that it could have been avoided. He comes from a loss at the start. We knew it would be difficult because they were risking everything and they have accumulated a lot of people up front. I'm a little angry for having tied at the end, but the point It is very valuable," he said in statements to TVE that Europa Press collects.
Rodri pointed out that Germany has changed its approach against Spain and that it is a team "with a lot of physical strength that demands you in individual duels." "We have to get used to it because other rivals will do the same in the World Cup. We have competed well, we can do better but in the end it is a point that allows you to reach the last game with the maximum guarantees", he commented.
Regarding his central position, the Manchester City player said that he tries to learn every day. "It's a different role, in which I'm getting along very well with my teammates and I know how important it is for the team. I'm growing every day," he said.
