Luis Enrique watched his Spain side record the biggest win during his time as coach as Germany were torn apart at the Cartuja in Seville. Needless to say, the coach seemed very happy with the result but placed an emphasis on the team's performance as a whole rather than individuals.

Joyous occasion: "This win makes me feel very happy - its very important because not only did we win well, we played well too. The way we felt, we didn't deserve to lose any of the games we played in qualifying. We've scored 13 and let in just three".

The team's performance: "For me, everyone deserves credit - I cannot single one player out. To be able to reduce a team like Germany, everyone has to work together. The plan didn't change and that makes s feel very proud. We didn't speculate, and did what we set out to do".

Spain's figures: "We know what country we live in and we accept the criticism we receive. Sometimes it can motivate you, other times we ignore it. We are no better now, nor were we so bad before when we struggled to score. We've ended with 13 goals which is a lot".

Perfect game: "Germany fielded their best team and I thought that right from the start we played well. It was one of the best, most complete games Spain has played. I the previous game we were the better team but came away empty-handed. It will be nice playing the Final Four"

Injuries: "The injuries were light and I hope the players aren't out for very long. That was the worst part of tonight for me, because I was a club coach too once and I so I know exactly how it feels"
