Morata dropping out from the list is the most noticeable development, I think

Yes, I don't think he deserved to be included, honestly. We are well covered with Aspas, Costa and Rodrigo.

Busquets, Iniesta, Silva, Asensio is one of the strongest midfields in the tournament.

I reckon it’ll be Isco instead of Asensio in the first team. Isco has been in mind blowing form for Spain.

Thing with Asensio is, he doesn't really play in the 'spanish way'.

What a midfield. Spain have no competition there in terms of talent.

No real backup DM for Busquets but other than that, you can't really complain.

Did anyone out of Fabregas, Morata, Alonso and Bellerin even deserve to be in that Spain squad. They have all had pretty poor seasons by their standards, especially Alonso and Fabregas.

Alonso could of been a winger option given that Spain have no width in attack.

Spain’s width comes from their full-backs in Carvajal and Alba. That’s the way they’ve played for years. The only issue was who would be going to the tournament up front and those selected have deserved it because of their respective seasons at their clubs and also playing for Spain. The squad has been selected as it should for the first time in a long time. Everyone has earned their slot!

Now it’s about performing. You can have all the talent you like but nothing is a given in a tournament such as this one.

Not surprised about Bellerin, really poor season, he really has let himself down and probably needs to fuck off from Arsenal as well, seems to think he is a big star and I have seen this before with other players which his attitude, he has achieved fuck all.

I've always felt that Spain still have that underachieving in them. I don't think it will happen this time personally, but we've seen it too many times in the past.

However, with this squad they need to be reaching quarters at least.

No Sergi Roberto?

Good utility player but Spain don't need that given they have Carvajal, Azpilicueta, and Bellerin as RB options and the sheer vast in quality they already have in midfield.

Bellerin isn't going to the world cup. Odriozola is.

It is so good to see Aspas, Odriozola, Nacho, and Vazquez in the squad. Not the biggest names but some of the biggest performers.

Not sure about Odriozola and googled to know that he is a RB too,  based on the pick I assume he is better than Roberto then

Written about him before and so has @The Rebel CRS in the past.  Infact I mentioned him in the game against Barcelona. He is a real talent and being touted by both Spanish giants (you know which two) and a few other European clubs.

Odriozola is amazing. He is dynamite; pace, technique, work rate, and one hell of a cross. His crossing is unreal.

His crossing is indeed extraordinary and very accurate.  He also has the knack of being accurate on the run at full pelt which is something very rare in fullbacks.  He is still raw talent though, but all the signs are there and his selection is a very smart one for everyone I think.  Haven't heard or read anyone questioning it in the media.

Fuck me on an unrelated note, I didn't know Xabi Prieto had retired. :(

Yeah, a real servant for La Real and sadly occurred for him on a day when Iniesta and also Torres left their clubs. Although they did give him big pieces in the Spanish news media.
