Marco Asensio I played in Prague for just over half an hour. He did not appear in a match for Spain since the final quarter of an hour that he played in the 6-0 to Germany in November 2020. However, that time in the field of Slavian It could mean a turn for the Balearic in his relationship with the Spanish team.
On May 29, it was six years since his debut with Spain. Vicente del Bosque He gave way to the door of the French Euro, in which he did not enter because the man from Salamanca did not face the step forward that his body asked for. But since then, Marco hasn’t slammed the door. A goal in 27 games is too low a background for his potential.
Before the Czech Republic He entered the field aware of the opportunity before him, which if it is not the last one, it could be very close to it. It was noted. “He was on the bench and I told him if he seemed to take the sauce out there,” he said. Luis Enrique after the match.
The intensity that I transmitted Asensio in that half hour he explains very clearly that he knows well what challenge he is facing.
Beyond the shot to the post that could have been 1-2 in one of those hitting actions that are a house trademark, it was his attitude that caught the attention. The Asensio of that half hour in Prague he was an aggressive footballer in the pressure and in the recovery as has rarely been seen with the Madrid. He put his leg in, fell back and adjusted to what the coach demands of his attacking players when you have to look at your own goalkeeper.
Luis Enrique had no problem explaining that the call from Asensio had a good part of explanation in the casualties that the selection has in its lead: Oyarzabal, Yeremy Pino, and Gerard Moreno.. As he did not hesitate to challenge the Balearic to show him that he has a place, something that others did in the past to stay.
Blades to RDT
Away from the national team after the return of Luis Enrique, Iago Blades He was the first to go from being out of a list to the starting eleven. After being called up by Diego Costa’s fright in Luis Enrique’s first call, the Galician started at Wembley and stayed with the team until the change of guard.
The last case is that of Tom’s Ral. He entered in November, with Spain playing the World Cup, with the list already given and after falling Ansu Fati. From being on a week off, he went on to start first against Greece and then in the final against Sevilla at La Cartuja. Of the four games he’s been available for, he’s played in all four and started three.
Koke and Azpilicueta they are examples of forgotten players who have become fixed. They are mirrors, all of them, in which Asensio can be measured. It is in his left foot, in his head and in his legs to take advantage of this moment, which could be the one that takes him to Qatar.
