Luis de la Fuente, Spanish coach, prepares several surprises for his first squad that will facilitate this Friday in Las Rozas. Spain plays Norway and Scotland in Euro 2024 qualifiers and coach will change team look About the 2022 World Cup.

One of the novelties that I intended to include It was Robin Le Normand.. The player finally opted for the Spanish national team instead of the French one and Efforts are being made to achieve express nationalizationsimilar to the one performed with Aymeric Laporte.

However, the bureaucracy is not advancing at the expected pace and it is likely that Le Normand will still not be Spanish before Friday. Final approval must be given by the Council of Ministers and the case is not, in principle, on the agenda for the next few days.

His debut could be postponed until June, when Spain open the ‘Final Four’ of the UEFA Nations League in the Netherlands. Italy will be rivals in the semifinals, with the Netherlands and Croatia on the other side of the draw.

A new central axis

The defensive line is the one that can suffer the most news. Rodri and Laporte were the World Cup couple, but the former will return to the pivot, as announced by De la Fuente, while the defender lost his starting job at Manchester City. Eric Garcia, another regular, does not play for Barça, and only Pau Torres could survive from Qatar, plus the option of Hugo Guillamon if he again delays his position.

Therefore, the arrival of new centre-backs like David García (Osasuna)the return of Iñigo Martínez (Athletic) and other names like Vivian (Athletic) or Unai Núñez (Celtic).

A defense that Sergio Ramos will not be present after the coach called him to inform him that he would not have his services and the player made public the end of his passage through La Roja.
