The merits of Hugo Duro to be included in the list of De la Fuente


Last season he was Edinson Cavani’s substitute, but now he is the undisputed starter of the Che team, as his goals are the best argument not only for Baraja but also for the Rioja coach.

The move of striker Hugo Duro to Valencia CF compared to the previous and current seasons has caught the attention of Luis de la Fuente. In the 2022-23 season, the Madrid striker scored just two goals and in this campaign, which still has 10 games left, he has already scored 12 goals. Incredible performance and a fantastic development.

In the Pichichi table he is in 8th place, although it must be taken into account that of the 7 players in front of him, only 2 are Spaniards. Álvaro Morata with 14 and Borja Mayoral with 15 points. This is more than an argument that Luis de la Fuente has to make as the Getafe CF star remains in the hospital indefinitely.

The Madrid attacker has every argument to be called up to the Spanish national team.

Morata and Hugo Duro, the two best strikers in LaLiga for Luis de la Fuente

It is almost a fact that the Atlético striker will be on the final list for the friendlies against Colombia and Brazil and later Euro 2024. The Azulón club’s top scorer was supposed to fit in this direction, but unfortunately his physical setback (meniscus injury) forced him out of the squad for a long time.

This way, Hugo Duro is still on the merit list with his 12 goals they speak for him. The capital striker marked him al: Osasuna, Atlético, Cádiz, Athletic, Real Madrid, Girona, Almería and Getafe. Three of the teams in the top 4 of LaLiga EA Sports 2023-24. De la Fuente knows the 24-year-old deserves to be in his final squad.

Hugo Duro’s dream is about to come true

The Valencia CF attacker only had the opportunity to wear the national jersey once and he scored a goal on his debut. It was in 2020 with the U-21 in a European Championship qualifier against Macedonia. He played 45 minutes that day. Four years later, fate is smiling on the former Getafe striker as he has all the prerequisites to be called up to the senior national team.

Luis de la Fuente will announce his shortlist next Friday, March 15, and Hugo Duro’s name will almost certainly be included. The question is whether he will be on the final list for the friendlies. But there is no doubt that the Madrid native dreams of playing his first European Championship with La Roja and showing all of Spain that he is ready for great things.
