The Goalkeeper are three in number as the other teams, and they are Reina, Kepa, and De Gea. If anyone falls sick or any injury is caused then immediately, space will be filled by any one of them with full force and enthusiasm.
Nacho Fernandez, Sergio Ramos, Jordi Alba, Dani Carvajal and Gerard Pique are the five members who are sure to be there in Russia. Now the technical team will finally decide which seven members as defenders will make it to Russia. The intention is to have more attacking player to turn the matches to their favor and change the history of the League.
Alvaro Odriozola is a very fine defender in Spanish team like Sergio Roberto who can very well cover up Carvajal if the situation arises. There will take some position which needs a lookout but these will be grabbed by players like Cesar Azpilicueta and Marc Barta and Marcos Alonso who bags eight goals in this season. Nacho Monreal will most probably gain to catch any post within the team for this season.
Here the team needs nine members, and they are almost there. The midfield squad will be made up by Thiago Alcantara, Koke, Saul Niguez, Andres Iniesta, Isco, David Silva, Asensio, Lucas Vasquez, Sergio Busquets. Now, these are the permanent squad but if any challenges arise in between then some other names will be included in the team, and they are Javi Martinez, Jose Callejon, Asier Illarramendi, Dani Parejo, and Suso.
Attacks, the main intention of the Spanish Squad
Diego Costa, Rodrigo Moreno, and artiz Aduriz are very clear on their inclusion in the team, and they may not be in the team. This time they might miss the bus. Alvaro Morata is the best striker for Spain, and none can compete him in forwarding though he was not very successful in this season as he bags only three goals. There might be some fight between Aspas and Artiz Aduriz for the No. 9 position.
There will three or four forward men in the Spain football army. Mariano Diaz, Gerard Moreno is the biggest goal scorer, but they are still waiting for the call.
Some probable names who will follow the Spain squad for Russia 2018 are Pablo Maffeo, Pablo Fornals, and Real Betis.
Asier Illarramendi, Jose Callejon are two new names in the mind of Julen, but this will be tough for him to finalize on top of Diego Costa. It is also a surprise for all viewers that there was no call for David Villa inspite of being a record scorer in the Spanish squad.
There is a strong prediction that Spain will top the Group B with Portugal, Morocco, and Iran. The player like Isco in the midfield with Thiago would be stunning in the field against other to qualify in the first round and then enter the Round of 16. Each game would be tough, intense and little boring for every team in Group B. But one strong prediction comes out that Spain will come out victorious if the lineup matches as per their coach Lopetegui. Their scoreline would be good.
