Jesus Navas accompanied Luis de la Fuente at the pre-match press conference prior to Albania-Spain. The Sevilla player is on the verge of making history by becoming the oldest player to play for 'la Roja' in a major tournament.
"Being here is the best. We always have a lot at stake. I hope I can play tomorrow. Being here is unbelievable. We know it's difficult to continue like this, but we have to continue working with the same idea," he said.
Jesus Navas praised Albania's work at this European Championship, among other things: "If they are here, it's because they are doing very well. We have to be very focused to win. One bad day leaves you out, there are great teams. We have to focus on ourselves and keep it up.
Finally, he spoke of the similarities with the 2010 generation and had words for Lamine Yamal: "There was a very good group and we played good football. Now we are enjoying football and I see the enthusiasm of the people, which is similar to that of those years. Lamine is at a very high level. I have played there a lot. He's not contributing a lot.
