Some views of the players on the Portugal friendly,
Fernando Llorente: “We’re worried about what happened in Argentina and what happened today. We played badly, we all lacked intensity. Portugal were superior and ready and intense. It was a painful day. We didn’t address the game as we had from the beginning. We haven’t played our usual game and in that sense, Portugal has surpassed us. It was difficult. We have tried, but today we had our day. It’s hard for us to lose like that.”
Santi Cazorla: "The positive side is that it was a friendly. It’s clear that we can’t ignore the result as if nothing had happened. It’s always painful to lose with Spain, especially if you lose for four to zero. The coach hasn’t said anything. He will reflect on the game and is a man who knows how to keep calm. "
Carlos Marchena: “We have a great team and yet we have not been fine. We knew it was a against a strong and complicated team, but clearly we did not expect this result “
Cesc Fabregas: “We’re hurt. It’s been a big scoreline but we have to lift ourselves. We wanted to finish the year well but now we have to wait until February. It’s not been our best game but you also have to know how to lose. The truth is it’s a match where we can’t take anything positive. They played better than us, they had a lot of desire… Now we need to apologise to the fans and continue forward.”

The players will come on to the pitch wearing the shirt of the Iberian Bid logo and carrying a sign supporting the bid. Also the two captains, Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo will read a manifesto supporting the bid.
Both the Spanish captain, Iker Casillas, and coach Del Bosque, stressed the strong bond between Spain and Portugal at the press conference. Iker said they are in Lisbon to support the Iberian candidacy, which is the most important thing.
