Spain was forced into a final game showdown, and a straight shootout between them and Sweden for first place in the group wasn’t settled until a lone goal from Alvaro Morata in the 86th minute, but the Seleccion were eventually able to make it to their 12th consecutive World Cup.
Spain had a difficult time, particularly when up against strong defenses. Because of their success at the European Championship this past summer and their strong showings in the UEFA Nations League versus Italy and France this past year, there is cautious cause for optimism, despite the fact that there is some reason to be hopeful. Spain holds a dominant possession, but the question is whether or not this actually matters.
Pedri’s performances during Euro 2020 proved that the answer to the “are the kids ready?” question is unquestionably yes. Now, another promising young player for Barcelona is coming into his own and succeeding under Luis Enrique’s tutelage. Gavi is just 17 years old and will turn 18 this August.
The players picked and with whom the coach hopes to be able to fight are guys created to maintain the ball, have it in the opposition’s half, for the goalkeeper to play, and commit their forward, even if it causes spectators a heart attack.
The identity of Spain is not in question; nevertheless, the identity of those who defend Spain is. Aymeric Laporte appears to have a good chance of landing one of the four jobs, despite the fact that none of them are certain to be filled to a hundred percent due to the fact that different combinations have been employed previously. There is a weakness that causes alarm, but they are resolute in their belief that it is not enough to just protect themselves.
Luis Enrique is known for having traits like being clear and direct, being driven, and being very competitive.
READY TO SHINE
Something remarkable can be said about Fati, who just lost his record as the youngest player to score for Spain to another youngster, Gavi.
