Casillas warning for team-mates

Published Add your comment

Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas has warned against complacency against Russia after his penalty heroics on Sunday earned a Euro 2008 semi-final against the team they defeated earlier in the tournament.

Casillas saved spot-kicks from Daniele de Rossi and Antonio di Natale at Vienna´s Ernst Happel Stadium after a stalemate against Italy, setting up a repeat of Spain´s first match of the finals.

Spain won 4-1 on that occasion but Casillas said: "We would be naive to think that because we defeated 4-1 we would get to the final easily."
