The Spanish team showed yesterday once again that it is up for great things. If we look back and think of that moment in which Luis Enrique announced the call for the Eurocup, no Spaniard would have bet a penny because we would fall in the semifinals against the favorite and deserving to pass as active and passive. The match that the team coached by the Asturian coach completed yesterday was simply a football lesson from beginning to end. It was without a doubt the best game this team has completed, but as usual they choked the goal.
In 18 months the World Cup in Qatar 2022 will be played, a competition in which we have hit the table to arrive as favorites or at least as a clear candidate to sneak into the top positions. Luis Enrique has a year and a half ahead of him to polish the little details that this team is missing to have it all.
That idea that the Spanish coach has been criticized for using young players is going to be key to having many ballots for the World Cup. It is possible that on the date in which that championship is played, Ferrán or Dani Olmo have finished exploding, perhaps Éric García is at that time one of the best in his position, Unai Simón will have already established himself in the national team’s goal and Pedri will continue on this path that will lead him, except in absolute surprise, to become a superstar of this sport.
Let us remember that one of the players with the most goals of the national team in recent years has missed the tournament due to a serious injury. Ansu Fati will fight to recover perfectly and reach Qatar with the batteries on and with devastating figures with Barcelona.
Yesterday our coach gave a bath of football knowledge to what is supposed to be the best coach of the Euro, Roberto Mancini. In addition, the team has shown to be united in both good and bad, and in a team like ours that harmony is more than key.
