AP Sports Writer

AL KHOR, Qatar (AP) — Spain coach Luis Enrique called it a “special day” after his team’s 1-1 draw with Germany in the World Cup. But he had nothing to do with football. Luis Enrique said Sunday would have been the 13th birthday of his daughter, Xana Martínez, who died three years ago of a rare form of bone cancer. Luis Enrique said “It was a special day for me and my family” and added that “she is still present every day.” He wished her “a good day” wherever she was.
