Luis de la Fuente is preparing to experience his most complicated press conference since he became senior coach. And he sees that he has already had to face delicate moments in his career as head of the Spanish team. Having won the League of Nations will not prevent him from facing a bad experience. That appearance in which he had to explain the reasons that led him not to call Sergio Ramos or the one he had to give after the defeat in Glasgow were not enjoyable. But Friday’s will have nothing to do with it.
At 12:30 they will sit in front of journalists in the Ciudad del Fútbol of Las Rozas and will have to prepare to give endless explanations. His support for Luis Rubiales during the Extraordinary Assembly and his statement afterwards condemning the former president of the Federation has placed him in the focus of the news. And, for better or worse, he will be the first to face the journalists.
However, the important thing about Luis de la Fuente’s appearance this Friday in Las Rozas is to announce the list of those summoned that will defend Spain in the important matches that measure the national team against Georgia and Cyprus. The National Team cannot fail if it does not want to see its future become complicated towards qualification for the 2024 Euro Cup.
For this, the big news on the list will be the figure of Lamine Yamal. The young Barcelona player has said “yes” to Spain and will be among those chosen. The objective of the Federation is to prevent Morocco from acquiring the services of a young man with great projection. The RFEF has moved quickly to convince him.
Lots of doubts
Except in goal, where Kepa Arrizabalaga, Unai Simón and Robert Sánchez will be, there are doubts in the rest of the lines. In defense, Carvajal and Azpilicueta will be the right backs, while on the left side comes the generational change with Fran García and Balde. It must be remembered that Jordi Alba has decided to retire from the national team. In the center of the defense will be Laporte, who will continue to be important despite having gone to Saudi Arabia, Nacho, Le Normand and, possibly, David García.
In the center of the field, Isco could be the big news, although it seems difficult for him to be on this list. If he continues at this level, he will go further. Those who will be there are Rodri, Zubimendi, Fabián Ruiz, Mikel Merino and Gavi. Álex Baena also has options. Those who will not be there due to injury are Pedri and Ceballos, both injured. Furthermore, Canales, who has gone to Mexico, has few options.
Finally, up top, in addition to Lamine Yamal, Dani Olmo, who is in great shape, will also be safe on the side. Asensio, Nico Williams, Yeremy, Ferran Torres and Ansu will fight for the other two positions. While Morata, Joselu and Oyarzabal could return will be the offensive reference.
