Staying calm is power: Luis de la Fuente

Speaking after the match, Fuente said, “The players know the country is going to be very excited, we’re aware of that and of the euphoria. We just have to stay calm and be professional because staying calm is power.

Of course this give us a boost, and settles us, but in five days we have a big game against Italy. Above all we have to stay calm, our target is still very far away, we have to just keep our feet on the ground,” Fuente added.
