Their XG is cumulatively 6.09 or something across both their games but it doesn’t feel that way watching them.I thought Enrique was meant to have evolved Spain's style of play beyond just the personnel? They've been slightly unlucky with not taking chances they've created but when you've got Morata up front, what do you expect?
Still feels to me they're trying to play with a fairly similar philosophy except their doing it with poorer personnel and without with Ramos, Iniesta, Xavi, Busquets, Villa etc.
I'm all for having a footballing identity but when you're drawing 1-1 with Poland in injury time and you're passing the ball around your defence with little impetus to get the ball forward, there's something wrong.

They look more in line with the Spanish sides of the 90’s and early 2000’s
Honestly think their defense is not as good as it used to be. There was a while when teams just couldn’t score on them. Don’t know how many games in tournaments they went through with just conceding like 1 or 2 goals in total.Agree mate. You'd say as great as the Spanish golden generation was, they weren't exactly banging them in for fun either.
