The coach of the Spanish national team, Luis Enrique, announced the final list of players he is counting on for the upcoming World Cup.
Bearing in mind which players carried the biggest burden of qualification for the World Cup in Qatar, there are no major surprises on the list of “Red Fury” selectors.
The most notable are the absences of Sergio Ramos and David de Gea, but it is clear that Enrique wants to complete the rejuvenation of the team.
It is noticeable that only six players, including two goalkeepers, are outside Spanish clubs, and as many as seven players are from Barcelona.
Here is Spain’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar:
Goalkeepers: Robert Sanchez (Brighton), David Raya (Brentford), Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao).
Defenders: Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Eric Garcia (Barcelona), Hugo Guillamon (Valencia), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Jose Gaya (Valencia ).
Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Koke (Atletico), Gavi (Barcelona), Rodri (Manchester City), Carlos Soler (PSG), Pedri (Barcelona), Marcos Llorente (Atletico).
Forwards: Pablo Sarabia (PSG), Alvaro Morata (Atletico), Ansu Fati (Barcelona), Ferran Torres (Barcelona). Marco Asensio (Real), Dani Olmo (Leipzig), Jeremy Pino (Villarreal) and Nico Williams (Bilbao).
The 2010 world champion will be in Group E, with Costa Rica, Germany and Japan.
