Aged 21, Eric Garcia symbolizes him even more the youth in which Luis Enrique places his confidence behind.

« Sarabia although very little used at club level has shown Luis Enrique that he is a reliable and successful player with La Roja in the games that matter,“says our specialist.

He is not an example of absolute confidence either, but nevertheless holds that of his coach, Luis Enrique. « Morata is the most used player by the coach under his tenure and despite his failures he understands the movements of the game set up, » reassures LigActu about him. The man with 26 goals in 56 caps will once again be the spearhead of La Roja in international competition.

Ferran Torres

An attack not necessarily in the best conditions in the club, but who knows what strengths to rely on in selection and will play on his good understanding, a polished game and a caviar environment to cause problems for opposing defenders.
