Arsenal and France defender Laurent Koscielny has suggested a way his country can beat Spain on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old believes that they should use a high line of defence, something that has been used by Arsenal and he believes it will help stop La Roja.

“There are two solutions, to play low or press higher up,” the Gunners defender said at a press conference.

“We run a lot, and have the physical condition required [for the latter].

“We used this at Arsenal against Barcelona, and succeeded. This could be a good solution for us.”
