Nacho was called off by Luis Enrique at the last minute

Dani Carvajal will recover this week the representation of Real Madrid in the Spanish team. Luis Enrique had not called a player from the white team since last March, but the drought of Madrid internationals in the Asturian’s calls could have been interrupted earlier. As reported by Antón Meana in the Real Madrid-Rayo Vallecano preview in the Sports Carousel of the SER, the coach had planned to call Nacho for the first international break of the season, last September, but the youth squad suffered a few days before the list a muscular overload that made Luis Enrique discard him at the last minute of his plans.

Nacho, who had started as a center-back in Real Madrid’s first two league games, suffered an overload after the game against Levante, just in the week that Luis Enrique had to give the list for the World Cup qualifiers against Sweden, Georgia and Kosovo. The defender spent the break in Valdebebas working first in the gym and then training on the pitch alone and did not return to work with the group until the rest of the internationals began to return.

The Madrid defender has not been called up with the National Team for three years, since October 2018. Luis Enrique called him on his first two lists as coach, but stopped having him after a bad match in the League of Nations against England. Nacho made his senior debut in a friendly against Chile in September 2013, with Vicente del Bosque as La Roja coach. Since then, he has defended the Spanish shirt on 22 occasions and played in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, in which he played two games.
