With Spain set to tackle France in the quarter-finals on Saturday, Spanish centre-back Sergio Ramos is preoccupied by a friendly face in the French front line.
The 26-year-old centre-back will be in direct opposition to his Real Madrid club-mate Karim Benzema.
"We have a great relationship and we keep in touch via text messages. He might not have had a great beginning (to the tournament), but I think he's a great forward," said Ramos.
"Even though he doesn't score, he works hard for the team and makes a difference. It's very hard to play against him.
"If you lose him for a second, he can score a goal. If he doesn't have a good game tomorrow, it'll make a big difference."
