Koke helped Spain beat Germany 6-0, while Lodi starred in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Uruguay and Felix scored in Portugal’s 3-2 win against Croatia

“We will arrive for this match very motivated”, said Felix “We all know Barcelona, ​​they like to keep possession and they will make us run more than usual But if we play our game we will have a great game These are the matches we like to play, against good teams, against great players “

Messi returned to Spain on Wednesday and escaped after being asked about criticism of him by a former agent for his teammate Antoine Griezmann

“To be honest I’m a little tired of always being the problem with everything at this club,” Messi said

He also complained that he had to go through an inspection by the Spanish tax authorities on the plane upon arrival
