Here we show you the squad that Spain announced for the upcoming FIFA World Cup

The 2022 FIFA World Cup starts from November 20 and the coaches have started to announce their national team squad.

Spain head coach Luis Ernique has named his official squad for the tournament. His 26-man squad surprisingly includes six forwards but more midfielders, roughly indicative of a high-passing game throughout the World Cup campaign, as they always do.

Midfielders

  • Sergio Busquets (FC Barcelona)
  • Rodri Hernandez (Manchester City)
  • Gavi (FC Barcelona)
  • Carlos Soler (Paris St Germain)
  • Marcos Llorente (Atletico de Madrid)
  • Pedri Gonzalez (FC Barcelona)

Extenders

  • Ferran Torres (FC Barcelona)
  • Nico Williams (Athletics Club)
  • Yeremi Pino (Villarreal CF)
  • Alvaro Morata (Atletico de Madrid)
  • Marco Asensio (Real Madrid)
  • Pablo Sarabia (Paris St Germain)
  • Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig)
  • Ansu Fati (FC Barcelona)

For the first time ever, Sergio Ramos has not been included in Spain’s World Cup squad. He has appeared in 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cup before.

“I don’t want to evaluate the players who are not on the list,” Luis Enrique said when asked about Ramos.

“I acknowledge and thank all the players who have contributed during my time here and played matches with the national team, but from there the important ones are now the 26 who are here.”

Speaking about Fati, Luis Enrique said: “Ansu is in the process of getting back to being the player he was before his injury.

“He is now fully recovered, he has played many games for his club. We can discuss when he is back to his previous level, we all want that.”

Let us tell you that Fati has not played for his country since October 2020 due to the knee injury that ruled him out for 10 months.

Spain Starting XI

  • Ferran Torres – LW
  • Alvaro Morata – ST
  • Marco Asensio – RW
  • Pedri – CM
  • Rodri – CDM
  • Gavi – CM
  • Marcos Alonso – LB
  • Cesar Azpilicueta – CB
  • Pau Torres – CB
  • Dani Carvajal – RB
  • Unai Simon – GK

Ferran Torres and Alvaro Morata – Alvaro Morata has been good for Atletico Madrid this season. On the other hand, Ferran Torres may not have shown his form this season, but he is certainly a great striker.

Marco Asensio – Spectators will have their eyes on this Real Madrid winger in the upcoming tournament. We all have seen his shooting skills or how far he is able to shoot.

Pedri and Gavi – Fans call them the new generation of Andres Iniesta and Xavi. And it’s because of their playing style, which is very similar to the two legends.

Rodri – The Manchester City midfielder is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world at the moment. We believe that he will be selected for the World Cup squad, which has not yet been announced.

Marcos Alonso and Dani Carvajal – These two names have a total of six UEFA Champions League titles combined. Of course, Carvajal dominates by far, but Marcos Alonso also needs to show his true strength to everyone.

Eric Garcia and Pau Torres – Spain’s defensive area will depend mostly on these two young players.

Unai Simon – Simon’s performance at the 2020 UEFA Euros earned him great respect. He will most likely be the first choice goalkeeper for Luis Enrique.
