He made a great match, like the rest of his teammates. He unlocked the match
Julen Lopetegui told reporters referring to Isco, scorer of two beautiful goals in the first half, before Alvaro Morata added a third one in the second part.
He scored two fantastic goals and has been very good under pressure. He wants to be a main player and fortunately he is with us. He has had more games and it makes you grow, mature and become more polished. He is a great player. He has grown significantly with and without the ball
the Spain coach said, impressed himself with how the Real Madrid midfielder has evolved the last 12 months.
We had great confidence, tremendous spirit and knew how to solve complicated moments. I’m content and satisfied because it was a very complicated opponent
