SQUAD | Spain players announced for World Cup qualifiers

Spain boss Luis Enrique has selected his squad for the upcoming Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifying matches.

Goalkeepers: Unai SimónDavid de Gea, Robert Sánchez

Defenders: Jordi AlbaJosé GayàCésar Azpilicueta, Marcos Llorente, Eric GarcíaAymeric LaporteÍñigo MartínezRaúl Albiol

Midfielders: Sergio BusquetsRodriKokeMikel MerinoCarlos Soler, Brais Méndez

Attackers: Pablo FornalsPablo SarabiaFerran TorresAdama TraoréÁlvaro MorataGerard Moreno, Abel Ruiz

The squad has no Real Madrid players and seven from the Euro 2020 squad have been rested by Luis Enrique. Pedri, Thiago, Olmo, Oyarzabal, Pau Torres, Diego Llorente and Fabián have all been left out.

With only one country going to Qatar directly from the group, the 2 September match in Sweden is key. A win paves the way, a draw makes November’s match in Seville vital and a defeat in Solna means they will have to go to the play-offs. The other two games are on 5 September in Badajoz (Georgia) and 8 September in Pristina (Kosovo).
