Very good days! The moment of truth has arrived for the Spanish Olympic soccer team. Luis de la Fuente’s men are playing their way to the quarterfinals and they do so, no less, than with the Argentine team. It is true that it could be worth even a defeat to achieve his goal, but also that it would be a good time to hit the table.
So far, Spain has proven to be a team that has a lot of the ball, but also has a hard time scoring goals. Today we must find the success that has been missing on other days. Survival is about it. There is no doubt that Spain has players to put an end to the bad feelings. Today they have to take a step forward.
As much as the numbers in this tournament are not the best, the truth is that if there is a reliable team facing goal, it is the national team. In the last tournaments played with players from this squad, the third matches of the first phase have always been in which Spain he has drawn all his strength. The technicians do not stop repeating that the team goes from less to more and history seems to repeat itself. In Italy they beat Poland 5-0, in the Eurocup the little hand was taken by Slovakia and in the past sub 21 Czech Republic lost 2-0.
And in all these appointments some of the five most offensive players participated. Luis de la Fuente. Dani Olmo, Puado, Marco Asensio, Rafa Mir and Mikel Oyarzabal. None is doubtful of something that, all of them, have been doing throughout their lives.
The former is the one who plays furthest from the rival goal and has scored six goals in 14 matches with the under-21s, the Espanyolista scored 13 goals last season with his club and Oyarzabal opened the can in this championship and also reached 13 targets with the Real. It has not been so effective in recent dates, but we must not forget that the first thing it did Asensio after a year without playing, it was to score a goal. And finally, the former tip of the Huesca He finished his year-and-a-half journey with 25 goals and scored five in his ten under-21 caps.
Therefore, due to the quality of a team that is going to be more physically, it is time to continue trusting a team that does not want to speculate and only wants to pass as first in the group.
After doing the full training yesterday, Oscar Mingueza He will return to the squad less than a week after being injured. The Barça defender has shortened deadlines, but it is still too early for him to return to the title and everything indicates that the match will start from the bench and will not have minutes if everything goes normally. A) Yes, Oscar Gil will stay on the right side and Cucurella It could be from the game in the left-handed lane.
Like in front of Australia, the midfield will remain for Zubimendi, which will form with a Pedri that remains in the eleven with the passage of the games and with Mikel Merino, who could come back.
Finally, Asensio would return to the starting team after playing the last minutes of the last match and accompany Olmo and Oyarzabal, two fixed throughout the competition.
With these weapons Spain will look for a victory that allows him to reach the quarterfinals as leaders. A draw is enough to pass, even a defeat would be worth it, but you want to pass in a big way.
