Salma Paralluelo, great novelty of Vilda's list for the European Championship

The Spanish coach leaves Amaiur, Ainhoa, Nerea, Zornoza and Abelleira out of his call-up of 23 players and recruits the young promise from Villarreal

The Spanish women's team already has its final list of 23 players for the European Championship, which will be played in England from July 6 to 31. The coach, Jorge Vilda, facilitated this Monday the call for the great continental tournament, in which is the young promise of Villarreal Salma Paralluelo and from which the Real Sociedad striker Amaiur Sarriegi, the midfielders Claudia Zornoza and Teresa Abelleira, from Real Madrid, and Nerea Eizagirre, from Real, as well as Athletic defender Nerea Vicente.

The five would be priority options in the event of a last-minute casualty due to covid or injuries, as was the case of the new Mexican Pachuca striker Jenni Hermoso, a sensitive drop in the European Championship due to a grade 2 sprain in the internal lateral ligament of the right knee. The regulations allow changes to be made to the lists of each team up to 48 hours before the start of the tournament, so the options of the discarded players are not completely extinguished.

The positive surprise of the final call goes through the inclusion of Salma Paralluelo, beyond the unquestionable presence of the pillars of the most exciting Spanish team in memory, based largely on Barça. Sandra Paños, Irene Paredes, Mapi León, Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmatí or Esther González, called to replace Jenni Hermoso as Spain's offensive reference, form the backbone of a team that already dares to look face to face at the giants of the Women's Football.

The young Villarreal attacker is at 18 years old a physical prodigy capable of combining football and athletics at the highest level in her specialty of the 400 meters and 400 hurdles, she has an enviable record with the lower categories of the national team - champion of Europe and the World Cup with the U-17 in 2018- and she is one of the pearls of the new generation of Spanish soccer players despite not having debuted yet. Physical ailments prevented him from debuting with Spain in the rout against Australia (7-0) at the Nuevo Colombino de Huelva.
