Spain he wants to start his own revolution in front of a country that knows a lot about revolutions. In fact, you could say that they made the most famous. That which began with the self-proclamation of the Third Estate as the National Assembly in 1789 and ended with the coup d’état of Napoleon bonaparte in 1799. Now, in the middle of 2021, the boys of Luis Enrique they will seek to hit the table with San Siro as a witness to re-savor the honeys of victory nine years later and, why not, begin to change the current football scene.
Selection of Luis Enrique it returns to a final eight years, three months and nine days later. Since that night of Maracana, where a team very different from the current one was surpassed by Brazil on the Confederations Cup, the national team does not play a game for the title. From that day they only last in time Sergio Busquets and César Azpilicueta. The rest is a young team, eager to start writing their history and that has been able to return to the Selection that competitive DNA that he lost in Brazil and that he recovered in the last Eurocup, where only the penalty lottery deprived the national team of playing a final in which who knows what would have happened.
Spain came to this League of Nations with the youngest team and with the feeling that it was the worst set of the four. The world champion, the third classified in the last World Cup and the European champion were the rivals of a Selection who has known for a long time that his strength is in the collective. In the locker room you do not perceive the feeling that they are worse than anyone else, since the team of Luis Enrique, a selection of author, does not believe better than anyone, but capable of winning anyone. And before the great ones, she usually comes out victorious.
On a stage like San Siro, Spain will try to win again, something he has not done since 2012, when he overwhelmed Italy on Kiev. That day he conquered his third Eurocup and put the finishing touch to an era never seen before in the world of football. Almost nothing remains of those times, but the Selection again there is a final and ahead they have the challenge of defeating the best team in the world individually, as defined Luis Enrique at a press conference. The Selection wants to start his particular revolution in Milan.
The team you will bet on Luis Enrique in view of France it will be very similar to the one who played and won against Italy. Unai Simon it is fixed under the sticks. The defense will consist of Azpilicueta, Laporte, Pau Torres and Marcos Alonso. The rear will be challenged to stop Griezmann, Mbappé and Benzema. Almost nothing. In front, Sergio Busquets will be the man in charge of balancing the team, while creating the game of the Selection it will be a matter of Gavi and Boil. And above is where more doubts appear.
Oyarzabal his position is practically assured, while the rest of the attack is to be decided. Ferran Torres should be, although until warm-up you will not know if you are fit, while Pablo Sarabia points to the eleven after being a starter against Italy, but the presence of Pablo Fornals o Yeremy Pino.
A cured rival
France must correct the errors shown in the first half of the semifinals against Belgium in Turin, a duel in which they left behind at halftime (2-0). Benzema and Mbappé equalized the contest, and, after somewhat annulled Lukaku offside, Theo Hernandez came to the rescue with a saving goal in the 90th minute (2-3). A victory that has filled the Gauls with morale after a streak of play and results far from their level.
In view of Spain They will try to reinforce themselves mentally, something very necessary after the defeat against all odds in the round of 16 of the Eurocup in view of Switzerland, and they will cling to the new connection between Kylian Mbappé, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann. The first two, candidates for Golden BallThey are in splendid shape, and they hope to confirm it at San Siro.
The positive for coronavirus of Adrien rabiot, not very fine in the match against the Belgians, will make the midfielder of the Monaco Aurélien Tchouaméni, who came in his place in the 74th minute, has a place in the eleven of Deschamps. Apart from the Juventus player, Lucas Digne will not be there either, with a hamstring injury.
