Ansu Fati and Adama Traore got invitation to play for Spain in UEFA Nations League. On the other hand, Mali and Guinea Bissau are set to miss out on Wolves Winger Adama Traore and Barcelona’s wonder kid winger Ansu Fati. This came after their invitation to the Spanish national team. Spain will be playing in the UEFA Nations League this September.
The young forward
On Thursday Luis Enrique, the Spain head coach, unveiled six debutants for the Spain squad. Ansu Fati was among them. They are set to feature in next month’s UEFA Nations League matches against Germany and Ukraine. The new Manchester City signing, Ferran Torres and his 19 year old teammate, Eric Garcia have made it to the senior team.
Traore’s great season
Adama Traore has been prolific this season. As a result, he has received a first time call up for the Spain national team. The winger had played for the Under-21 side. With this invitation it is clear that he has joined Spain permanently. This means he will not play for his African country, Mali.
Surprisingly, there was no place in the team for any Athletico Madrid player. The usual mainstays Saul Niguez, Koke, Alvaro Morata were all missing out. Moreover, Marcos Llorente was excluded despite a superb end to the campaign as a converted forward.
Spain will face Germany on 3rd September. This is prior to hosting Ukraine on 6th September. Spain failed to qualify for the final four of the Nations League in the last edition of the competition.
I bet you are looking forward to Spain matches. Watching Ansu Fati and Adama Traore after receiving invitation to play for Spain may be great.
