Luis de la Fuente (Spain coach, on the injury exit of his midfielder Gavi during the match against Georgia): “It's a very difficult moment, very hard for the player, for the FC Barcelona, for the national team, for me... Tonight (Sunday) it feels like we lost, we are devastated. It's part of football, but it's the ugliest part. I feel sorry for him. He made a bad support and his knee locked up, the first action has nothing to do with the second.
Gavi’s reaction? He was broken, upset, he didn't understand how such things could happen to him. He was extremely sad. At halftime the locker room looked like a funeral wake. (...) It’s the hardest, most bitter day since I’ve been coach.” (at press conference)
