Apart from the fact that it is the game that brings them closer to qualifying for Euro 2024, the coach wants to use this commitment to send a message to the part of journalism that still welcomes the return of some players.
The game that the Spanish national team has today will not be easy, but it will not be a challenge either, as Luis de la Fuente knows, who has other goals. Everything is served like this the Red one Add three more points, this time with the fans on your side as the game will take place in Los Cármenes. However, the coach doesn’t have complete confidence in the Cypriot team.
To secure the game, Luis de la Fuente has decided to make some changes to his squad, with defense being the most obvious. There he decided to discard a player who came to La Roja because of his great performances in recent months, but who did not show this against Scotland. It should be noted that he was not involved in Georgia’s defeat and will not play against the team under the command of Temuri Ketsbaia.
David García is missing from the list drawn up by Luis de la Fuente for the game against Cyprus
Of the 23 players called up for the European qualifier, the defeat of Navarrese defender David García stands out the most. His call to La Roja was hardly expected as his level at Osasuna was regularly good. But his dismissal in the last few hours was very surprising, especially for a certain section of the press.
The fact is that the Basque was not there in the duel against Georgia and will now also be missing against Cyprus. This means that the central defender pair could once again consist of Robin Le Normand and Aymeric Laporte, both naturalized Spaniards. But García’s dismissal has another connotation that journalism is now beginning to exploit to put the former Real Madrid captain back in the spotlight.
From now on, Sergio Ramos’ campaign for the Spanish national team begins, and Luis de la Fuente is watching
With the Reds defender leaving the national team, the search is open for a new defender who could face Scotland and Norway in October. That could be Sergio Ramos, if his performance at Sevilla FC goes as José Mendilibar expects. For the Spanish press, the 37-year-old player can still occupy a privileged place in La Roja.
Luis de la Fuente has no problem calling the Sevillian defender, but in return he has to show the Nervión club that his level is just acceptable. Most likely, García was not called up to the squad in October and this is where the Camero must take his chance. The last time Ramos wore the Spanish jersey was on March 31, 2021 against Kosovo.
