“Spain is a candidate to win the World Cup”

Guille Uzquiano has been in charge of raising the curtain of the week in A Diario to analyze together with Raul Varela how did you see the Luis Enrique’s Spanish team after the victory against the Czech Republic in Malaga, as well as to give their opinion of other teams that are competing during the month of June.

Labels. “We are candidates. There is no team that is scary. There are teams that are above Spain, but not too far. Spain is among the eight or ten teams that can win the World Cup.”

Players. “They are interchangeable. When the line-up came out we said that it didn’t look bad, but if we made an eleven of the substitutes it would come out almost better. And if you made one with the uncalled-up players, a very good one would also come out. Spain can have three teams, 33 players of a very similar level. If someone is missing it is not too noticeable, it is not like France if they are missing Mbappé or England are missing Harry Kane”.

Increase. “Asensio, who seemed not to count before the call, comes out reinforced; Sarabia who came as a substitute and has become a starter; and Gavi, who is 17 years old. But in Qatar it would not be surprising if the ones who stood out were Carlos, Ferran Torres or Azpilicueta , for saying three names at random”.

Not summoned. “De Gea; Navas, Albiol, Nacho, Gayá; Parejo, Canales, Mikel Merino; Ansu Fati, Gerard Moreno and Aspas. Or Oyarzabal. An eleven that can compete with yesterday’s and with the starting theoreticians.”

World. “Now we see it as brown because it hasn’t been played in the summer and it’s in a country like Qatar. But I think it will be followed more and the peak of the players will be very high.”

Selection. “What I like the most is the competitiveness, since they were eliminated in the World Cup they have only lost two games: a European Championship semifinal and a League of Nations final. It is difficult to beat Spain. Luis Enrique has formed a homogeneous group of people young people who follow him, he has eliminated all vestiges of stars, Sergio Ramos, Piqué, etc. It is a group that believes in the coach and that has allowed some very young to emerge. Pedri, who has not been but is the emblem of the national team, hopefully Ansu Fati recovers, and Gabi for me are the three mainstays of the national team for the future, not just for the present.
