Julen Lopetegui, Spanish national coach, has made public the list of players who will be present in the next games of Spain. Marco Asensio is the great news for Los Blancos because he’s been called by the national time for the very first time.
Spain will face Colombia in the 7th of June in a friendly game in Murcia. Afterwards, the Spanish national team will play on the 11th of June against Macedonia in Skopje, a key clash for qualifying for the Russian World Cup.
The national coach has called six Real Madrid players: Carvajal, Ramos, Nacho, Isco, Asensio and Morata. They’ll join the group later than their colleagues because the appointment is for the 3rd of June and Los Blancos will be in Cardiff, getting ready for the final of the Champions League.
Asensio has many reason to be happy in these days. He’s been a key player in the last month of competition for Los Blancos and he could win his first La Liga title in the next three days. Besides, he will have the opportunity to make his debut with the national team after the Champions League final. His summer will be very short, because he’s been called by the Under 21 to play the European tournament in the summer.
Another important name in the list is Isco Alarcón. Lopetegui has a lot of confidence in the Málaga born player and he even called him when Isco was on the bench. Now that the playmakers is showing his quality, he could be one of the most important players in the Spanish national team. Now, he is ready to make his debut.
