Spain exerted near-complete dominance over Georgia in their Euro 2024 victory on Sunday and are now eagerly anticipating a quarterfinal clash with Germany, according to coach Luis de la Fuente.

Spain rallied from an early own goal to secure a 4-1 win against Georgia in the round of 16 at the Duesseldorf Arena. De la Fuente commended his team's effective display, noting their consistent control throughout the match.

"We managed the game impeccably with outstanding play against a team that defended stoutly and countered effectively. It's crucial to recognize the significance of this win, as our opponents were formidable," De la Fuente stated at a press conference.

Spain initially fell behind when Robin Le Normand inadvertently scored into his own net off Otar Kakabadze's cross. However, they equalized by halftime and took command in the second half.

"We were aware of Georgia's threat through transitions and counters, yet they failed to register a shot on goal. Despite the initial nerves after their goal, we created numerous opportunities that could have led to an 8-1 scoreline," De la Fuente explained.

Spain's next challenge is against host nation Germany in Stuttgart on Friday. De la Fuente expressed confidence in his squad's abilities.

"We possess a talented, skilled, and committed team. Believing in our capabilities is vital. I don't intend to belittle any other team, but we are the strongest in this tournament," he asserted.

"Germany is an exceptional team, featuring some of the world's top players, and they are highly organized and disciplined. However, they will encounter a similarly committed, well-organized, and challenging opponent. We are ambitious and eager to prove ourselves.

"As is often the case, it will be the finer details that determine the outcome of the match," De la Fuente concluded.
