Koke looks back on Spain's winning summer

"Amazing" was the verdict of midfielder Koke as he sat down to reflect with UEFA.com on Spain's triumphant UEFA European Under-21 Championship campaign in Israel.

Spain's Under-21 side had an "amazing" time at this summer's UEFA European U21 Championship according to midfielder Koke – a verdict you might expect from a member of a team that sealed back-to-back European wins in Israel.

Koke was full of positives as he sat down to reflect in this exclusive video interview on the June tournament and the good times shared with Julen Lopetegui's triumphant team. "It feels like a family, we have always supported each other," he told UEFA.com.

The Club Atlético de Madrid man also sang the praises of his captain, Thiago Alcántara, scorer of a hat-trick in Spain's 4-2 final victory over Italy in Jerusalem. "He is just very calm and relaxed, and he shows that to his team-mates, and he also showed the football he can play."
