Aim: Robert Sanchez, Brighton goalkeeper. Pedro Porro, right back for Sporting de Portugal. Pedri, Barcelona midfielder. Bryan Gil, Eibar winger. They are the four new names that Luis Enrique has introduced as an expert in this type of surprise in the selection list for the matches at the end of the month, qualifying for the World Cup. It has its importance because it is the last list before the final of the Eurocup, which will be known in May.
The national coach has taken off the hook with the call of Robert Sanchez, a 23-year-old boy, a native of Cartagena, who changed Levante for Brighton many years ago and who now finds this reward, unexpected for 99.9% of those who they are attentive to the selection, it goes without saying what that percentage is if we talk about those who follow the evolution of the national team sporadically.
With the importance, scarce, that has the figure of a third goalkeeper, the spotlights refer more to the other novelties. Especially to that of Pedri, the Barça midfielder who has become essential for Koeman and who is now reaching the senior team. Like Bryan Gil, owner of a spectacular season at Eibar, and Pedro Porro, an under-21 international who also leaps as he is completing a fantastic year at Sporting de Portugal. Jordi Alba also returns, by the way, whose relationship with the coach is special.
For the rest, Luis Enrique continues to bet on his hardcore, although in some cases, such as Ferran Torres, they are not being protagonists in their teams. De Gea in goal -although Unai Simón was the starter in the last games of November, Ramos, Eric Garcia, Busquets, Fabián, Gerard Moreno, Dani Olmo. They are all very common with him. Thiago also returns and Koke, Llorente, and Morata remain.
Spain plays on the 25th against Greece in Granada, on the 28th he travels to Georgia, and on the 31st he receives Kosovo in Seville.
