Valencia midfielder Soler rejects Spain criticism of Barcelona defender Eric

Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler has defended Eric Garcia after Spain's World Cup qualifying defeat to Sweden.

Soler was one of the few positive notes for Spain on the night. The Valencia midfielder scored in the 2-1 defeat.

He spoke to Superdeporte about various issues, including dedicating some nice words to Barcelona defender Garcia, who was criticised in the defeat.

“He will give a lot to Barcelona and Spain both now and in the future," said Soler.

“I met Eric in the Olympics, he's a great guy, as a person, close, humble. This season he signed for Barcelona and I'm sure he'll do a good job, he has the ability and quality. He deserves it, he's a good guy and with a lot of room to improve too."
