not mind becoming the last player to whom

Luis Enrique

gave the title in this start of the

Nations League


He has been used by Ancelotti to play a secondary role, without the brilliance of others but capable of snapping.

The Balearic wants to fight to be on the World Cup list, where he knows that






and even

Gerard Moreno

are missing, and he does not miss the opportunity to vindicate himself.

He wants his ticket to Qatar.

249 days away from the fields due to torn ligaments have been an ordeal, complicated by many other discomforts that have modified his game and that took him out of the Red.

the Czech defense did not give them respite until he managed to serve a goal to Carlos Soler and offer him a second that the Valencian could not take advantage of.

The Spaniard was a nightmare for Jemelka, cutting, centering and looking for



Even a penalty he claimed for a takedown when facing goalkeeper Mandous alone.

On his right wing, the game of Spain was supported just when the team and Marco Asensio himself needed it most.

With only one year left on his contract at Real Madrid, he unravels the daisy about his future.

He wants to be the protagonist and this season he has not been, nor at the Bernabéu are they guaranteed that he will be.

Renewing is a risky bet with the World Cup in Qatar just around the corner.

A change of scene is also a major challenge when you leave the European champion.

He showed off in the showcase of Spain, and that is advantageous for the footballer... and for Real Madrid.

Asensio found an ally last night in another player who raised his price:

Carlos Soler


His time at Valencia seems to come to an end just when he dazzles Luis Enrique, who has discovered more in these two weeks of concentration than in the entire last season as a Valencianista.

To that he adds goals, three in nine games as an absolute international.

Yesterday's as arrival, occupying the gaps from the second line to make, in 58 minutes, raise the bid of those teams that want it.

"At the moment I only think about going on vacation and continuing to fulfill dreams, which since the Olympic Games has been a very nice year," he limited himself to saying.

For Asensio and Soler to wear the same shirt that the

women's team

will wear at the next European Championship in England,

Unai Simón

had to celebrate his 25th birthday with two masterful saves that stopped the Czech Republic in its tracks, emboldened at the start after the draw in Prague (2-2) a week ago.

The Athletic goalkeeper again erased the defensive imbalances that, once again, appeared, scaring the packed stands of La Rosaleda.

Two clearings in the first part and one in the second.

Surrendered to Gavi

However, the footballer who put the fans in his pocket was once again Gavi.

The Andalusian has become, at 17 years old and with only nine international caps, one of the main attractions of this team, due to his impudence and his vision of the game despite the 'warnings' from Luis Enrique, who had only left him once time on the bench: a friendly against Iceland in March at Riazor.

He had barely been on the field for 15 minutes when he drew and executed the play that ended up rounding off the victory with a goal by Sarabia, another footballer whose future is in the air who has shone in this window.

Who is still waiting for his return is

Ansu Fati


The national team hasn't had a comfortable match so Luis Enrique doubted whether it was appropriate to give a minute to a footballer who is at 65% and who watched the duels from the bench only after the injury of Raúl De Tomás.

He will have to keep waiting to play again and to rebuild his spirits by ending 607 days away from the national team.

Portugal stumble in Switzerland

The victory against the Czech Republic places Spain as leader of group 2 after

The victory with another solitary goal by Sarabia last Thursday gained the importance that Luis Enrique gave it, seeing the Portuguese leave the three points and the leadership.
