The new U21 starts its way to Paris 2024

The silver of Tokyo 2020 is past and from today Spain has to set an ambitious but mandatory goal: gold in Paris 2024. And to achieve it, the U-21s have to put on their overalls from now on. The first step and the most immediate priority is to qualify for the next European 2023, which will be held in Romania and Georgia. Once La Rojita has certified his stay in the final phase of the tournament, he will have to reach the semifinals to secure the ticket to the next Olympic Games. A long road that begins today in Almendralejo against Russia (8:45 pm).

For this new adventure, Luis de la Fuente will arm this new Under-21 with a large part of the block of the successful generation of 2000, which so far has given Spain many joys in the lower categories: it has been champion of the European Under-17 and Under-19 consecutively and finalist in the U-17 World Cup. Tenas, Guillamón, Blanco, Bryan Gil, Miranda and Sergio Gómez, on the list, have been part of this champion team for years. Others like Eric Garcia, Ferran Torres and Abel Ruiz, who were a fundamental part of these successes and who could participate in the qualifying phase, are already with the Absolute. I said, an exciting generation.

During this qualifying phase, De la Fuente will be able to count on players born from the year 2000 and although the base of the team will be made up of footballers born in that year, there are also players who have been stomping on from further behind. This is the case, for example, of Nico Williams, Iñaki’s brother, that already last season he made his debut with the Athletic first team. Also noteworthy are the cases of Iván Azón, who has established himself as a starter in a team as demanding as Zaragoza, and above all, Yeremy Pino, who has played as a starter and won a Europa League final with Villarreal. All of them, born in 2002.
