Luis Enrique leaves with 56% of victories

Luis Enrique, between his two stages, has led the Spanish team in 48 games, with a balance of 27 wins (56%), 14 draws and seven losses. He did not win any title and his greatest achievement has been reaching the Euro 2021 semifinal, eliminated on penalties by Italy, which later became champion. He also reached the final of the League of Nations, whereupon the Spanish team was defeated by France.

Under the mandate of Luis Enrique, the Spanish team has scored 100 goals and conceded 38. The Asturian used 66 players. In the two final phases of the two major tournaments played (European Cup and World Cup) he won three matches: against Slovakia and Croatia in the first, and against Costa Rica in the World Cup in Qatar.

Luis Enrique made his debut as a coach with a 1-2 win against England on September 8, 2018 at Wembley in the League of Nations, with goals from Saúl Ñíguez and Rodrigo Moreno. That first section was suspended on June 10, 2019, when he had to leave office due to a serious illness of his daughter Xana and included ten games, with eight wins and two losses, 28 goals for and 10 against, with a percentage 80 percent win rate.

The second leg began on September 3, 2020, with a 1-1 against Germany and has lasted 38 games, of which they won 19, drew 14 and lost five, with 72 goals for and 28 against.

By win percentage, and counting the coaches with more than 20 games, Luis Enrique is in the middle zone, well behind Vicente del Bosque (76%), Luis Aragonés (70%) or Julen Lopetegui (70%). Also below Iñaki Sáez (65%), José Antonio Camacho (63%) and slightly behind Javier Clemente (58%). The Asturian surpasses Luis Suárez (55%), Miguel Muñoz (55%), Ladislao Kubala (45%), José Villalonga (45%) and José Emilio Santamaría (41%).

Throughout his career, Luis Enrique's Spain faced 27 different rivals, of which he has only failed to beat the Netherlands (1-1 in their only duel, a friendly), Poland (1-1, in Euro 2020), France (1-2, in the Nations League final) and Japan (2-1 in the 2022 World Cup) and Morocco (0-0), in their last two clashes. He won the rest.

Of the 66 footballers used, five have been goalkeepers, eleven center-backs, thirteen full-backs, twelve midfielders, fifteen attackers (halffielders, wingers or second forwards), nine forwards and one versatile man like Marcos Llorente, a midfielder or right-back.

From their first call-up against England in 2018, seven players have gone to the Qatar World Cup: Dani Carvajal, José Luis Gayá (who fell due to injury), Azpilicueta, Sergio Busquets, Rodri, Marco Asensio and Álvaro Morata.
