Saint Martin de Re (France), June 9 (IANS) Spain captain Iker Casillas said on Thursday that it will be difficult for them to win the third consecutive title of the Euro football championship, although the team has "good players" to do so.
The goalkeeper told BRT News that all competing teams have been growing with generational change, so it will be difficult for Spain to win the Euro 2016, which kicks off on Friday.
He explained that Spain has good players, but everything has to come together and with key moments of luck in order for victory, as was the case in the last two competitions, reports Efe.
The former goalkeeper of Real Madrid acknowledged that Spain's group includes the Czech Republic, Turkey and Croatia, who have "good players" and can complicate his team's qualification for the last 16.
Casillas warned against overconfidence in the opener against the Czech Republic after Spain lost the final warm-up against Georgia.
