It could not be. La Roja once again competed from you to you against one of the current great powers of football, but it remained at the gates. After its great role in the Eurocup with a much more limited team than previous years, Spain was left at the gates of the final and today it has lost by the minimum in the Nations League final.
The Spanish have a clear idea of the game, perfectly raised by coach Luis Enrique, which allows them to face teams with better names like Italy or France. Despite this, it is clearly seen how at specific times, the difference causes the currency to fall the other way, since Spain needs to improve in all lines to be able to aspire to great things.
The Spanish team was not able to defend the advantageous result against France, but it has left wickers in which to trust for the future. La Roja had many casualties for this final, and still competed from you to you.
Facing the World Cup, Luis Enrique could count on Ansu Fati and Pedri, who are called to be two of the best players in the world. The canary is in fact nominated for the Kopa trophy, for the best young player, and has a good chance of winning it. In addition, Gavi and Ferran have been a great discovery and promise to be two mainstays of the team.
If this young talent, La Roja manages to recover the experienced Ramos, Thiago and Asensio, the national team can unite a team capable of competing for everything and against everyone. Luis Enrique has proven to be a coach capable of exploiting the performance of his players to the maximum and in short tournaments he can make a difference. Losing always helps to learn and grow, and the defeats in the semifinals of the Eurocup and in this final will allow Spain to improve greatly.
