Pedri has started all three of Spain’s matches in the group stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and, despite his youth (20 years old) he became a bulwark in midfield. The midfielder of the ‘Red’ is psyched to continue advancing in the competition and now, he thinks in Morocco that he is his rival this Tuesday for the round of 16.
The footballer does not trust the African team, because he knows that he has great footballers and also highlighted the virtues of his opponents. “Morocco has a lot of quality in its elite players, you have to have respect for them, they have come first in the group”he said at a press conference.
“They are a very physical team, they will not leave us space in the middle of the field because they know that Spain has a lot of the ball and they will pressure us in midfield”added the athlete who plays for Barcelona.
Pedri pointed out that the team will not be affected by seeing the stadium with the greatest presence of the Moroccan public. “All the players who are here in the Spanish team are used to playing in stadiums where the people are against. I personally feel comfortable in that situation.”he expressed.
In the same way, the young player mentioned the key is concentration in the matches for the final instances. “We have reached a phase where if we have those 10 minutes of disconnection we go home, we know that we have to improve that, we are going to work on it and we are going to improve it because otherwise we will be out”he added.
