The 2008 and 2012 edition of the European Championship saw Spain, with the effective leadership of Iker Casillas,becoming the first team to win two consecutive European Championships. Luis Enrique’s side will try to duplicate this success despite the underwhelming performance during the qualifiers which they want to improve in the finals. Here is the potential XI of Spain for the Euro 2020:
Sergio Busquets (Defensive midfield)
One of the veterans and the guaranteed players to make it to starting team, if he stays fit, is Sergio Busquets. He contributed in the the 2010 World Cup and the Euro 2012 triumph of the team, and also featured at two other World Cups and Euro 2016.This will be sixth major tournament of the Barcelona player since his senior international debut for Spain in 2009.
Dani Parejo (Central midfield)
The Valencia captain Dani Parejo is enjoying some of the best form of his career this season. He has now made over 350 appearances for Los Ches and provides a classy option for Luis Enrique in central midfield. His appearance for the team last year was always in doubt as he wasn’t; called up. But, if given a chance to start for next year’s tournament, he can prove his place in the senior team.
Fabián Ruiz (Central midfield)
The Napoli player Fabián Ruiz is an essential person in the position as he dribbles well and makes quick and sharp turns. Healso works in the left side of the midfield, where he is dangerous despite lacking pace. He made his debut last year in Euro 2020 qualifier as a substitute for Isco. However, Fabián’s time in the team as he has been hospitalised with flu and missed Euro 2020 qualifying match against Norway.
Marco Asensio (Right wing)
The Real Madrid player Marco Asensio is on the peak of his impressive performance for Zine Zidane. This display is needed by team for next year’s tournament. Asensio made his senior debut for Spain in 2016 and also represented the nation at the 2018 World Cup. If recovered from an injury that ruled him out in the qualifiers last year, the team will have a strong hold in the midfield.
Rodrigo (Left wing)
Last year, Spain sealed its qualification for Euro 2020 with Rodrigo Moreno came off the bench to score a dramatic injury-time equalizer in a 1-1 draw against Sweden. This performance will guarantee the Valencia player a spot for next year’s tournament as his skills is needed by the team. He is regarded as one of their top talents and among those likely to fetch a potentially big fee this season.
Alvaro Morata (Striker)
The Atletico Madrid frontman Alvaro Morato has shown an impressive form this season following his Chelsea nightmare that almost ruined his career. Morata returned to the squad last year and opened the scoring in a 7-0 thrashing of Malta in Euro 2020 qualifying. He previously committed that he will do all he can to show he’s the best option in the race to start up front for Spain at Euro 2020.
