Spanish national team squad announced: Isco, Koke and Saul dropped
After the Nations League fiasco, a competition in which Spain made a flying start, but ended up missing out on the 'Final Four', the team nicknamed 'La Roja' now faces an important challenge: book its place in Euro 2020.
Therefore, the squad for the matches against Norway and Malta on 23rd and 26th March respectively, has been announced.
The absence of Isco, who has not enjoyed much game time at Real Madrid while Solari was the manager, is notable. Marco Asensio has not shone either, but the Mallorcan is in the squad.
Luis Enrique has made a small revolution, since Saul, Koke and Thiago have also been left out.
The big name in the list is Getafe's Jaime Mata, who is one of the surprise packages this year with 13 goals in the league so far this season. Canales, Parejo, Muniain and Fabián Ruiz also form part of the squad.
