A fair result would have been the one that was on the scoreboard before Greece’s goal,” said Luis Enrique.“We deserved another result, although we did not create the flow of opportunities or have the finesse to score goals against a team as organised as Greece.”Morata had a late chance to win the game but he headed straight at the Greek goalkeeper.
