The national soccer coach, Luis Enrique Martinez, will announce this Monday (12.00 hours) its list of summoned for the dispute of the final phase of the Euro 2020, with doubts in some lines and the possible novelty of the entry of the recently nationalized Aymeric Laporte.
The appointment will be at noon in the Luis Aragonés auditorium of the City of Football de Las Rozas (Madrid), where the Asturian coach will reveal his chosen ones to assault the continental title, with the possibility of using the 26 players that the UEFA.
This can open the range of selected, especially in areas such as defense, where there may be doubts in the right-back position or who will be the centrals, especially after the recent nationalization of Aymeric Laporte.
The already Spanish-French defender, Manchester City left-hander and who has not played so much this season (27 matches between all competitions so far), it seems that he will have a hole in this list and will open the fight for being in that position where It is expected that, despite his lack of minutes and rhythm in 2021 due to injuries, the captain will be Sergio Ramos.
Pau Torres (Villarreal) has been another of those called up regularly by Luis Enrique despite the fact that he was not due to injury in the last one, where they entered Íñigo Martínez (Athletic), Diego Llorente (Real Sociedad) and a Eric Garcia (Manchester City) who have played very little this season. In addition, the performance offered by Nacho (Real Madrid), César Azpilicueta (Chelsea) or Beautiful mario (Atlético) open the shortlist of candidates even more.
Of these last three, the Madridista and the Navarrese could also opt for the position of right back where Luis Enrique has some ‘problem’ due to the drop in selectable such as Carvajal, Sergi Roberto and even Lucas Vazquez. Jesus Navas (Seville), absence of the last list, could return together with Pedro Porro (Sporting CP), the one chosen in March and who has not been called up by the U21. On the left, Jordi Alba (FC Barcelona) and Jose Luis Gayà (Valencia) are outlined ‘fixed’, and an alternative could be Angelino (Leipzig).
We will also have to see the trio of goalkeepers, with Unai Simon (Athletic) and David De Gea (Manchester United) with a ticket in theory guaranteed. Robert Sanchez (Brighton) was the option chosen as the third goalkeeper in the previous call and another option could be Fernando Pacheco placeholder image (Alaves).
In the center of the field, Busquets and Pedri, of FC Barcelona, Rodri (Manchester City), Koke and Marcos Llorente, from Atlético, and Fabian Ruiz, from Napoli, should have their place guaranteed by the confidence that Luis Enrique Martínez has shown in them. Thiago Alcantara is on the Asturian’s mind despite his irregular year in Liverpool, and names like Luis Alberto (Lazio), Equal (Villarreal), to usually do (Valencia) or Jordan (Seville) could have their chance.
Finally, at the front, the big news could be Iago Aspas (Celta), a player in high demand by the fans, with a goal, who can play in various positions on the offensive front and who aspires to fill the gap he leaves Bryan gil, who will go with the U21. Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Dani Olmo (Leipzig), Ferran torres (Manchester City), Mikel Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad) and a ‘9’ like Alvaro Morata (Juventus) also seem to have their place secured.
Those summoned by Luis Enrique will begin the concentration on May 31 in the Ciudad del Fútbol of Las Rozas (Madrid). On days 4 and 8, the Red’ will play its last two friendlies against Portugal (Wanda Metropolitano) and Lithuania (Butarque).
