The Spanish national team is already qualified for the last 16 of the European Championship and, moreover, as group winners. 'La Roja' have left a good taste in their mouth in their first two games, above all, with great performances from their players. One of those who has dazzled has been Marc Cucurella, who gave an interview to 'AS' in the run-up to the match against Albania.
"It was a difficult few months, but with the games I played at the end of the season, and especially the last call-up in March when we played a great game against Brazil, I thought I would have my chances. In the end, it happened. I'm happy to be here," he began.
However, he also revealed the tough time he had to leave Barcelona: "I'd been at La Masia for a long time, you're young, and to be honest, it wasn't a good feeling to leave. But then I got the opportunity at Eibar and I took it as an experience. It went well and it made me happy. I'm grateful for what happened because maybe I wouldn't have had so many minutes at Barca. Maybe I would have stalled. In the end, everything happens for a reason and I had to take another path, to go on loan until I arrived at a big club," he said.
"I'm happy. I don't regret anything I've done along the way. Maybe if they had given me that opportunity, with Jordi Alba, he would have played everything and I would have played more limited minutes. Maybe I wouldn't have played for two years, and when you're young, that takes away confidence. I'm fine".
