It is once again a strong choice on the part of Luis Henrique. Accustomed to operating in the form of the moment, the coach of Spain quite regularly makes choices that may surprise La Roja. And this time, it is at the goalkeeper position that a small event will occur, since David De Gea will not be there.
No World Cup for David De Gea?
Thereby, according to the Spanish daily AS, David De Gea would not be part of Luis Henrique’s pre-list for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The doorman of Manchester United would therefore pay for his more than disappointing performances since the start of the season, he who has been regularly criticized since the start of the season and for a few years now. A new strong choice for the coach of La Roja, but which should not upset the workforce of Spain that much.
Unai Simon indisputable holder
Indeed, for a few months now, Luis Henrique has got into the habit of playing Unai Simon in the goals of Spain. A choice that the coach had made in particular during the Euro. This had allowed Spain to go to the final of the competition.
To replace the titular Bilbao goalkeeper, there will therefore be no David De Gea. In all likelihood, Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez should be there. David Raya could complete this list of goalkeepers selected for the World Cup, he who holds Brentford.
Finally, the last world-class goalkeeper to make this pre-list is none other than Kepa Arrizabalaga. Back in favor at Chelsea, the Spanish international took advantage of the slack in the performance of Edouard Mendy to regain his place as holder. He could therefore take advantage of the sequence of matches to find a place in Qatar. The 5th place of this pre-list is occupied by David Soria, the goalkeeper of Getafe.
Big blow for David De Gea, when he seems to be criticized again and again in England…
