Nunez-Feijoo has also highlighted the merit of the Spanish team that Del Bosque coached, getting reach the highest transmitting values like teamwork and know how to lose, besides winning, recalling that "there are many ways to unite a country, and football is one of them. "
The president of the Xunta explained that "the Camino de Santiago joins Spain, because it covers all the Autonomous Communities", which is necessary, he says, "because we are concerned that unites the diverse Spain, regardless of where we were born" making an analogy with the role of the Spanish team as a link in society in recent years.

The ex manager will participate this afternoon at 20.00 in a speech to close the conference cycle organized at the Hostal Reyes Catolicos by Turismo de Galicia, addressing the issue of "solidarity as a key to the team win."
