The Spanish team completed its second day of concentration in the City of Football in a day with several advertising commitments, photo session and a training in which the players prepared the first of the two Nations League matches, against Switzerland, with Luis Enrique’s instructions to focus only on the match in Zaragoza.
Forbidden to think about Portugal, the next rival in the League of Nations, much less in the World Cup. It is the order of the coach Luis Enrique Martínez to his players. He does not want anxiety to be created by proving too much in the last two games before the list of those chosen for the Qatar World Cup is made official.
And before thinking about the duel in Braga, which will decide the team that wins the place for the final phase of the League of Nations, the coach has asked his players to focus only on the difficulties that Switzerland is going to present at La Romareda. The objective is to repeat presence in the fight for the title among the four best in the tournament.
After training on Monday in which the coach separated the players who had played the most minutes in their games on Sunday, Dani Carvajal, Pau Torres, Koke Resurrection, Marcos Llorente and Borja Iglesias worked the entire session with their colleagues on Tuesday.
The 25 internationals were under the orders of Luis Enrique in a training that began with the warm-up and fun in the rounds, before moving on to more demanding exercises, the preparation of tactical aspects and a game in reduced dimensions.
The Federation showed on social networks the success of the goalkeepers and the good scoring moment of Álvaro Morata, with two goals of beautiful invoice. The winning team was made up of David Raya, Jordi Alba, Hugo Guillamón, Pau Torres, Rodri, Pedri, Carlos Soler, Pablo Sarabia, Yeremy Pino and Morata.
“Exceptional, bravo”, Luis Enrique shouted to his players at the moment he closed the training session with the satisfaction of the dedication he saw in the session. At the moment he has not tried with what will be the first eleven, the one that will face Switzerland on Saturday at La Romareda, and tests by lines to see closely the moment of each player before making decisions.
The proximity of an atypical World Cup, which starts in November, has caused that, given the few dates available to the Federation with its concentrated players, the first days of the last concentration are loaded with recording of announcements and acts of sponsorship.
This Tuesday Koke Resurrection and Pedri supported a new agreement with their image and all the internationals along with the coaching staff posed for the official medical provider of the team. There are already 19 brands that have associated their image with the Spanish team before the 2022 World Cup.
