Ivan Rakitic spoke this Sunday about the match against Spain in the last one of the Euros' group phase. The Croatian midfielder was asked about the incredible level Andres Iniesta is showing in this tournament... Rakitic hopes he doesn't play against them.

Iniesta, rest

"I think his level didn't surprise anybody. Speak about Iniesta is speak about the magic of football. I think he enjoyed enough tough, I hope he rests against us".

Draw? OK

"They can be the league leaders. A draw won't be too bad. It's good for both, but I expect a very difficult game". 

Will Modric play?

"I hope so. He trained a little bit today. We'll see tomorrow how he trains".
