The Atlético de Madrid midfielder, Marcos Llorente, is the great novelty in the list of 25 called up offered by the national coach, Luis Enrique Martínez, for the matches against the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany, and to which they also return Alvaro Morata (Juventus), Koke Resurrection (Athletic) e Íñigo Martínez (Athletic Club).
In this way, the 25-year-old midfielder from Madrid is rewarded for the great moment that this season drags on, where he has become an almost indisputable piece in Diego Pablo Simeone’s network, who has managed to get his best performance playing closer of the area or as an interior. Now, we will have to see where the Asturian coach places him in a team with a very defined style.
Llorente, who was part of the U-21 team that was proclaimed runner-up in Europe against Germany at the 2017 European Championship and is also seeing the door this season (three goals), is the only debutant in this latest list of the Absolute in 2020 in which there are also news in the form of returns.
Thus, the loss of Rodrigo Moreno, the forward most used by Luis Enrique, has allowed the return to the selection of a Alvaro Morata who has also started with strength and goals his return to Juventus. For now, the Madrid, who had not entered any of Luis Enrique’s two previous lists, has scored six goals, four in the Champions League and two in Serie A, numbers that he hopes to drag a national team that needs more success from face to door and that he will not present any more news in his forward.
Another notable comeback is that of the midfielder Koke Resurrection. The Atlético footballer is also at a good level at the moment and is counting again for the project of the Gijón coach, who had called him for the last time for the October 2018 concentration.
The presence of the Madrilenian and Llorente have left Dani Ceballos (Arsenal) and José Campaña (Levante) without a place, and even a Thiago Alcántara absent in the previous one due to the coronavirus and who is not having much participation at the moment with Liverpool. The Betic Sergio Canales remains among the chosen.
The Spanish team will face its last international break of the year from next week, again loaded with three games, the first a friendly at home level, this time against the Netherlands at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, the Wednesday, November 11. Then, they will play the last two decisive games of the League of Nations, as a visitor against Switzerland (Saturday 14), and, above all, at home in La Cartuja against Germany (Tuesday 17).
