Two levels are driving Spain at this European Championship. One is formal. The other is that of group cohesion, which inevitably involves laughter. Pedri Gonzalez reflected this well in an interview with the newspaper 'El Pais' in which he offered several interesting statements. He went from his settlement in the midfield thanks to the instructions of Luis de la Fuente, to the ice baths that Ferran Torres gives himself every morning.
"Yes. One minute in ice water. He's been doing it for a year. He goes in every morning, before breakfast: ice water up to his neck and, before getting out, he dunks his head in it too. He got so heavy that he convinced me. And now I can't stop doing it. I've been doing it for three months now. It's good for my muscles, it wakes me up, it activates me. I recommend you try it," Pedri said.

For a footballer, the most important thing is to find what makes you good. At the beginning, for example, you don't have much idea about nutrition or what to do in a gym. But as you start to get experience, you find what works for you.
