The delayed Euro 2020 takes place this summer and we’ll be following La Roja’s bid to win the trophy they impressively won in both 2008 and 2012. It’s very much a new generation these days and while the expectation levels will be lower, Luis Enrique’s youthful squad is hoping to spring a surprise. We’ll have Spain Euro 2020 previews for every game they play in the tournament.

Spain Squad for Euro 2020

Luis Enrique named a 24-man squad for the Euros on Monday 24th May:

Goalkeepers: Unai Simón (Athletic), David De Gea (Manchester United), Robert Sánchez (Brighton)

Defenders: José Gayà (Valencia), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Eric García (Manchester City), Diego Llorente (Leeds), Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

Midfielders: Marcos Llorente (Atletico Madrid), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Rodri (Manchester City), Pedri (Barcelona), Thiago Alcântara (Liverpool), Koke (Atletico Madrid), Fabián Ruiz (Napoli)

Forwards: Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig), Mikel Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad), Alvaro Morata (Juventus), Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Ferran Torres (Manchester City), Adama Traore (Wolves), Pablo Sarabia (PSG)

It was a selection that raised a lot of talking points, as is usually the case whenever Luis Enrique picks a Spain squad. The most striking absence is that of captain Sergio Ramos, with injury problems denying him the chance to add to his 180 caps this summer.

Iago Aspas, Sergio Canales and Jesús Navas were other notable omissions from what overall is a more youthful squad than we’ve seen from Spain for some time. It’s also a squad that features no players from Real Madrid with Dani Carvajal and Marco Asensio also missing out.
