Not many people know more about playing in a final than Nahikari García.

In fact, when she captains Spain in the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship decider on Sunday it will be her fourth continental youth national-team final.

That will be a new record she will jointly hold with team-mates Andrea Sánchez Falcón and Naria Garrote, with whom Nahikari was runner-up in 2014 and 2015 as well as in the 2013/14 WU17 EURO.

However, the Real Sociedad forward intends for it to be different in Senec against France, kick-off 19:00CET. Nahikari introduces UEFA.com to her team-mates, with her fellow squad captain Sandra Hernández showing a dress sense and a sense of humour.

On the final ...

We know what it takes to play in the final and we are looking forward to it – of course, we are very anxious. We are looking to put up a good fight and hope to deliver.

The hardest trainer ...

I wouldn't name just one. This squad trains especially hard and that's what makes us successful – I couldn't single out just one player.

The most skilful ...

Maite Oroz.

The best dresser ...

Sandra Hernández. She has a very defined style and is good at accessorising.

Takes longest to get ready ...

A lot of them! Falcón [Andrea Sánchez].

The biggest joker ...

Sandra, she is a bit of a clown, she likes to imitate you or laugh or sing.

Team motto ...

What we say is – we have a champions' dream, we play, fight and win.

Strength as captain ...

I have the right character. I know when to have fun and when to think straight, be cool and manage the team and stop joking around.
