Graduation at the academic level comes when the student passes a stage. On the sporting level, it is difficult to establish a specific date. The same is true of historical periods. There is no clear consensus to determine when the Transition ended. And neither will there be to know when it was consecrated this group of young players.

The determination and reaction capacity of the Selection was enormous. Unai Simón’s mistake would have meant the collapse of any team, but Spain knew how to row. You know: unity is strength. Although it took many, many chances, the team tied before the break. An ideal moment to arrive at the locker room with another moral.

The win against Germany in the ‘Nations League’ seemed the consecration of these players. However, the team did not get off to a good start in qualifying for the World Cup. Neither is this Eurocup, with draws against Sweden and Poland. Do not be alarmed: this happens in any job. Some are more embarrassed on the first date.

Ferrán, alternative to ‘9’

Ferran proved again that he and the National Team are destined to go hand in hand as a couple in love. He justified his ownership with his goal, his assistance and his typical centers of the Argentine pasture. He said in an interview that he did not develop his football on the street, but that is not learned in schools. Nor does dribbling, another aspect in which he was seeded. The Valencian can be the solution to the goal problem.

While some 18-year-olds are trapped in Mallorca by a coronavirus outbreak, Pedri once again showed that his age is not what his ID indicates. He left flashes of his kind, like the pass he gave Koke. Despite his physical exhaustion, he endured the entire game. Some trapped in a hotel, others trapping spectators with their game.

Sarabia was one of the surprises on Luis Enrique’s list. However, his performance in the tournament is justifying his presence in future calls. Perhaps he will become a regular in Las Rozas. At big events, they like the surprise factor. And the Madrilenian invoked him. He scored the first goal and showed his audacity. Not only against Slovakia has his best version been seen.

Eric García is another of those crazy young people that make up this Selection. Nobody knew who he was before being summoned by Luis Enrique, But now all mothers see him as the perfect son-in-law. He again left signs of fatigue after 70 minutes. Also that must improve in some facets. His delivery is unquestionable and points to a headline in the quarterfinals.

Young people sinned when they were young with 1-3. They relaxed and the Croats achieved a draw. However, they learned from their mistake and made amends for it. Worse would have been the elimination for that relaxation. Like when you pull out the cheat sheet on the exam and they’re about to get caught. Finally, you pass but the fear stays with you. The kids will have to be careful in rooms.
