Spain Football team coach Julen Lopetegui announced a list of 23 players for the finals of 2018 FIFA World Cup. The head coach has made a combination of youth and experienced squad after his remarkable run in European Championships with Under 19 and Under 21. Maximum players from Real Madrid have been picked up by the Spanish coach including young Marco Asensio who won the UEFA Euro U19 with the current coach.
Sergio Ramos will be the captain of the national team. Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata was left out of the squad after a disappointing season with the English club. Striking has been always a problem for the Spanish team. Only three strikers have been selected for the Russia World Cup. The three main forwards are Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa, Celta Vigo’s Iago Aspas, and Valencia’s Rodrigo Moreno.
