Ansu Fati and Carvajal back to Spain's important World Cup qualifiers

MADRID, NOVEMBER 5 (Xinhua) – Spain coach Luis Enrique has recalled Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal and Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and left a first call for AC Milan’s Real Madrid loaner Brahim Diaz for its key two recent FIFA World Cup qualifiers. matches.

Spain travels to Greece on November 11 and then entertains Sweden on November 14 in two matches they must win to secure their direct qualification for next year’s World Cup in Qatar.

“We have to win both matches and we depend on ourselves to qualify,” said the coach, who said he regretted Spain’s draw at home to Greece in their opening group game.

“Now we have the opportunity to qualify and of course there is pressure. If you want to become a football player at a high level, you have to live with this. We have a young team but with a strong background and the veterans give us peace of mind. It is a very complete mix, “he said.

The coach added that he would take “special care” with players returning after injury. “We will not take any risks with Ansu Fati or any of his companions.”

Spain are without the injured Ferran Torres and Mikel Oyarzabal for those two matches, but Luis Enrique said he was “lucky” to be able to choose from a pool of “40 to 60 high-level players.”

The whole squad:

Goalkeepers: David De Gea, Unai Simon, Robert Sanchez

Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta, Dani Carvajal, Aymeric Laporte, Eric Garcia, Pau Torres, Inigo Martinez, Jordi Alba, Jose Gaya

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Rodrigo Hernandez, Gavi, Carlos Soler, Koke, Mikel Merino

Forwards: Pablo Sarabia, Yeremy Pino, Alvaro Morata, Rodrigo Moreno, Pablo Fornals, Dani Olmo, Ansu Fati, Brahim Diaz.
