On Thursday 26, Luis Enrique will give the list of summoned. A list in which changes are expected with respect to the Eurocup. Pedri has already been confirmed that he will not attend, to have a rest after having played everything last season, and will be on vacation for two weeks. Other Olympians could go his way.
These are the surprises that could be on Luis Enrique’s list for August 26:
Pau Torres has been on vacation and still hasn’t played a single minute with Villarreal. Instead, he could summon Nacho Fernández. The center-back has performed at a very good level in the first days with Real Madrid.
Luis Enrique does not lose sight of the Spanish players who participate in foreign leagues and Pablo Fornals has started showing a very high level with West Ham.
Imanol Alguacil hinted that Spain would not call Mikel Oyarzabal. The Real Sociedad winger is not on vacation and continues at a very good level. It is already a settled star. However, it seems that the technician will give him rest.
The lack of goal condemned Spain in the Eurocup. La Roja was not successful in the face of the door and Luis Enrique needs to supply it with new gunpowder. Rafa Mir proved to be at a very good level at the Olympic Games.
Can Unai Simón go from being the starting goalkeeper to not being called up? The Athletic goalkeeper has not played a single minute in the league yet. Luis Enrique might not count on him for the next three games.
