Luis Enrique tests with ‘the Panda’ and with Jordi Alba

Luis Enrique tested in Las Rozas the possible team that will play against Switzerland and that it is practically the same one that won in Stade de Genéve last July with a single change: Eric García in the position that Diego Llorente occupied in Geneva. But it is not the only news regarding the ‘eleven’, since the Asturian coach also took the opportunity to introduce the ‘Panda’, who could alternate with Morata in the match at La Romareda. In any case, before or after, the Betis striker is scheduled to make his debut with the National Team the day after tomorrow in a stadium that he knows well since Real Zaragoza was the team that paved the way for him to the First Division. In the same training, Luis Enrique also gave entry to the theoretical main group Nico Williams and Yeremy Pino, another rookie and a play-off, respectively. Both provide speed down the flank, a main element in the game of Luis Enrique’s Spain.

In addition to the news above, the presence of Jordi Alba in the group of starters called attention. Barça’s left back also alternated with Gayá who, like him although for different reasons (Xavi prefers other lefties and Gayá missed the start of the League due to an inexplicable sanction) is practically unprecedented this season. In any case, the left flank of Spain is very well covered by both, two expert players with unquestionable quality and speed. It is certain that Luis Enrique, beyond whether they are starters or substitutes from today until November 13, which is the date set by FIFA to give the list of 26 World Cup players, will include bothbarring injury or another imponderable, in the 2022 World Cup group.

The team that Luis Enrique has tried is the following: Unai Simon; Azpilicueta, Eric García, Pau Torres, Jordi Alba (Gayá); Busquets, Marcos Llorente, Gavi; Sarabia, Ferran and Morata (Borja Iglesias).
