The Sanhedrin of El Larguero with Ramón Besa and Manuel Jabois analyzed the opening day of the Euro 2020 and the aspirations of the favorite teams in this tournament. In addition, both journalists deal with issues such as the possible presence of Busquets or the vaccination of the Spanish team.
The victory of the Italian team
The victory of Italy against Turkey by three goals to zero he places Mancini’s men as one of the favorites. They have returned to leave a clean sheet and have scored three goals in a Eurocopa match for the first time in their history. This is how our experts analyzed it:
Ramon Besa praised that the Azzurri team did not play catenaccio as in the past: “A team that it has nothing to do with the catenaccio. He believed that he is in the line of solid teams that work at the choral level. I liked it a lot on a physical and tactical levelThey also have an optimistic spirit ”.
Manuel Jabois he was surprised to see such an aesthetic Italian team: ”A very aesthetic team. I have the impression that they go like a rocket. It seems to me one of the favorite picks to win. In this type of competition when the players play by memory they can be very dangerous ”.
How does Spain get to the Eurocup?
Ramón Besa expressed the two types of Spanish fans: “It depends on whether you believe Luis Enrique or not. Those who have faith in him hopefully and I believe that the interventions he has made so far invite optimism. The feeling that has been transmitted is of trust and security. I do not know what it will reach him for, but I have expectations set on seeing a new team. ANDThe positive of Busquets left me out of the game, but I have high expectations ”.
Manuel Jabois He emphasized that, despite inexperience, the players are of a high quality: “The only thing that matters is that the ball is going. The selection has quality and has packaging. We have won a World Cup with a defeat on the first day, it is true that, with less experienced players, but we’ll see what happens”.
Vaccination of the Spanish team
The Spanish team has been vaccinated just two days before the tournament, and it is that the recent positives of Busquets and Llorente have set off the alerts.
Ramon Besa I did not understand the disparity of decisions regarding the Olympians: ”There is a certain confusion, there is a lack of clear regulations. Not only in the selection, but also in all the communities. The sport had to have had a criterion. Vaccinate the Olympians and also those who go to the Eurocup. Some want to look good and others bad and those who have suffered are the players ”.
Manuel Jabois for his part, he also described as bizarre what has been done with the national team players: “Here the chicken is mounted because it is decided that the footballers are put at the last minute. It was not the top priority to vaccinate the national team because they have already played games being controlled by PCR. When you are going to give certain privileges you have to skip the studied queue and with some discretion. What has been done with the players who are not to blame for anything it’s bizarre”.
Will Busquets arrive on time?
Ramon Besa he had an impact on what a player like the FC Barcelona midfielder could contribute: “If it’s okay I take him because he is a referential player. He is the captain and makes a team, if he can only intervene from the second phase I would consider it. The selection has to generate people who assume the control and I believe that Busquets is referential to see who is going to take over the captaincies. It has a series of virtues that I miss”.
Manuel Jabois I preferred to risk because of the experience that Sergio Busquets can transmit to a team as young as the one chosen by Luis Enrique: “I would take a risk because if this team is missing something, it is people with experience and it seems to me a very valuable piece as not to risk. His experience is vital for all that he has played and won. We do not have too many hinges, from the golden age there are not too many uncles who make the link between generations ”.
