The atmosphere in the Spanish National Team is not at the highest point at the eve of the challenge against Albania. Sunday's referendum and defender Gerard Pique's statement on Catalunya's independence have caused during the national team training session where fans spared no insults against Barcelona's defender. But according to Thiago Alcantara, this tense political atmosphere will not affect the national team of Spain.
"Pique is calm as always. He has played several times at the Santiago Bernabeu and had no problem with the fans' whistles. Let's talk about the challenge to Albania because we come here to play football and not for someone's personal life and political debates," said the midfielder.
Alcantara said that the challenge against Albania is not easy at all but stressed that Spain has all the qualities to come up with three points from this match.
