Spain has been one of the standout teams in an Euro 2024 tournament where most of the favourites have underwhelmed.

Ahead of their semi-final clash with France, Marc Cucurella has said that Spain are benefitting from the ‘outsiders’ tag in this summer’s Euros.

Spain weren’t given a chance at the beginning of the tournament, but have beaten the likes of Italy and hosts Germany, on their way to reaching the semi-final.

“Within football, there has long been respect for Spain, how we play and the players we have, but maybe coming in [to Euro 2024] as outsiders helped us,” Cucurella said in a press conference on Sunday.

“We started with the confidence of having nothing to lose. Now that confidence has grown and we are in the key moment of the tournament.

“I knew we had a great team, which has been proven. We have fought so hard to be here and now we need one last big effort. Two more steps.”

Marc Cucurella has played every game for Spain, bar their final group game, and has been key for the La Roja. Gary Neville will definitely be eating his words, after having slammed the Chelsea left-back and the Spanish defence ahead of the tournament.
