Asensio gets away with it

In the end, he got away with it: Marco Asensio (26 years old) will be present at the World Cup in Qatar. Luis Enrique Martínez, the national coach, included him in the list of 26 players who will represent Spain in the first World Cup to be held in the middle of the season. A Marco Asensio who has sprinted in this last final stretch before the World Cup competition getting the best out of him and above all, a lot of involvement to get a place in the eleven of Madrid and in this way go to the Arab appointment.

Asensio has been paddling upriver since the beginning of the season. In the absence of a campaign for his current contract with Madrid to expire, the player did not know whether to accept any of the offers he had on the table. He even changed his agent last April with the intention of opening himself up to listening to those siren songs. What’s more, at the beginning of the season, Ancelotti left him out because he saw him more outside than inside the white squad. The Italian coach, however, spoke with him and challenged him to turn his situation around. He encouraged him by explaining that he would be important throughout the campaign. The same message was transmitted to Eden Hazard. One accepted the challenge. There is no news of the other, not even going out to warm up…

Y in those he put Asensio hands to work. His last appearances add up to three goals (two in the Champions League), two assists (a formidable one for Vinicius to finish off a splendid center of his in Leipzig) and participating in important plays, such as the filtered pass to Vinicius, so that he gave up Lucas Vázquez and unbalanced a tough clash against Sevilla. Against Rayo he showed his good level participating in the two white goals: he was the subject of a Fran García penalty that Modric converted and assisted Militao from a corner kick (he scores or assists every 67 minutes) Against Cádiz he did not play as he was slightly touched, as Ancelotti explained in a press conference, but in just three months he has turned his situation around, to such an extent that Madrid, who did not see any remarkable fact for his continuity (he came to value him at 50 million euros for a possible sale), rethink your situation and look for its renewal while the World Cup is played.

His partner Dani Carvajal (30) also attends. Both are the only two representatives of Real Madrid in the Spanish National Team that will attend the World Cup event in Qatar. For both players it will be their second World Cup date after having attended the tournament held in Russia in 2018, although Carvajal he was on the provisional list of 30 players that the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) had previously sent to FIFA for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Both did not play in the white team’s last game before the World Cup, but they are ready for when Luis Enrique needs them.
