Isco: I'm not going to speak to CR7 again
Isco has joked that he does not want to speak to Cristiano Ronaldo again after the Portugal star's hat-trick denied Spain an opening win at the FIFA World Cup.
Ronaldo scored a hattrick for Portugal and his performance is already being considered as one of the best individual displays in World Cup history. Isco, who played the 90minutes was in superb form himself in that Group B clash and has since joked during a recent interview that he will not speak to Ronaldo after his three goals, which included an unstoppable free-kick.
"He doesn't have a high strike rate, but when he has his day… his first two goals gave him confidence and got him looking for a hat-trick."
"At the World Cup, everything is complicated. You have to put in 200 percent in every game and even if you do, that won't guarantee you'll win," said Isco. "All of the teams are very motivated, there are some very strong teams and it's just very, very difficult."
Spain face Iran, winners over Morocco in their opener, in La Roja's second group match.
