PARIS: Spain will not crumble under the weight of expectation during Euro 2016 in France as they have grown accustomed to the pressure that comes with winning several major honours in recent years, winger Pedro has said.
“There is big pressure for us to win. That’s normal but we just need to focus on the tournament and each game when it comes along,” Pedro told his club, Chelsea’s website.
“We have had time to prepare but the Euros are always very difficult to win.”
“Confidence is high and the team have been doing well,” Pedro added.
“All the players are focused on the tournament and winning the cup but there are a lot of other strong teams such as England, Belgium and France, who are playing at home, so it will be difficult.”
