This Barcelona star is the reason why Spain may win the World a cup, it’s not Pedri
The Player who can lead Spain to another world cup glory
When Spain manager Luis Enrique released list of palyer for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World cup, some pundits and analysts, question the his choice of players, saying players like Sergio Ramos of PSG should be included in the squad due to his vast experience. The world cup winner was not the only player omitted from the list which left soccer enthusiasts stunned, Manchester United gaolkeeper David De Gea was also a big name expected on the roster.
Despite 3-1 victory against lowly rated Jordan in friendly game prior to the mundial, many felt the win is not a proper rehearsal ahead of the biggest soccer competition in the world. Enrique kept his cool and even replaced the injured Valencia defender, Jose Gaya with a 19-year-old lef-back Alejandro Balde, who has been impressive for the catalonia side this season.
The selection of the teenager shows Enrique believe in versatile young guns, as many suggested names such as Mikel Alonso and Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella as better options which fell on deaf ears of the manager. Moreso, Alvaro Morata with 30 years of age is the oldest forward chosen by the La Roja manager to produce the needed goals.
First game at 2022 world cup cup, the average young forward line and team has produced the biggest victory so far in the competition. Spain massacred Costa Rica by seven unreplied goals to stun bookmakers who didn’t fancy high scoring game. The youth blended team with an enterprising display in its first game have given many to have a rethink after Group opponent, Germeny were stunned by Japan.
Why luck may smile on Spain at Qatar 2022
Spain’s victory over Costa Rica may be seen as a good way to start and it is also a mens of passing message to all teams present at the world cup. From the blast of the whistle La Roja’s power house, the midfield marshalled by Pedri swung into action with invigorating display but the team will need starlet, Gavi to keep the tempo if they are to surprise many in the competition. The midfielder scored when assisted by Morata to set record as the youngest player to grab a goal at the world cup in 64 years.
