Spain answered their critics in brilliant fashion against Germany, and Morata can’t wait to see what people are going to say now.

Alvaro Morata can’t wait to go home and see what critics have to say now after Spain smashed Germany 6-0 on Tuesday to book a place in the Nations League finals.

Luis Enrique’s side headed to Seville on the back of a three-match winless run in all competitions. Dropping points in their last two Nations League fixtures, meanwhile, enabled Germany to nick top spot from them in Group A4.

It left Spain in a win or bust situation on Tuesday night, and they responded with an emphatic victory to silence their doubters.

“There is always something. I want to go home and see what they say about us,” Juventus striker Morata told Teledeporte.

“We have to do our job. The other day we did it. I would like to see what people say now. Against a European and world champion team.

“We all help each other, there are young people. You have to have faith. We have a Euros ahead of us.

“It is the attitude of the team. This is the team, we do what we have to do. It is a strong message for everyone. We want to continue this way.

“It was our best match with Luis Enrique. You have to take it to see all the good we have done. We would like it to always be like this.”

Morata scored the opening goal of the game in the 17-minute. Ferran Torres then stole the show by scoring a hat-trick, with Rodri and Mikel Oyarzabal supplying the other goals for Spain.
