The national team returns to the capital of Badajoz, where Raúl played for the last time in our country and where he has played and won twice
Lselection and the Federation are in mode Eurocup, but they do not stop looking at a calendar that does not give truce. In September the second window will be faced on the way to Qatar 2022. The first game will be against Sweden, in Solna on day 2 in a key match, the third in the capital of Kosovo (day 8) and in the middle a Georiga.
That game will be played at the New Nursery from Badajoz on September 5. From the Badajoz club that idea was raised last summer and it has gone ahead. The national team returns to a stadium where it has played two games: 8-0 against Cyprus on September 8, 1999 and 4-0 against Liechtenstein in 2 of the same month but 2006. That was the penultimate game of Raul with Spain, the last one who played in our country and the 101st in his account as an international.
The friendlies before the Euro
Before that comes the Eurocup, what for Luis Enrique He has yet to decide whether to give the list next week or leave it for the previous Champions League final. The coach can choose up to 26 players, something that does not just fill him. The scenario of an intermediate number between 23 and 26 (24) is very likely.
The selection will focus on the 31st in Las Rozas. Before the premiere at La Cartuja (the 14th against Sweden), two friendlies will be played. They will be in Madrid, although the stadiums have not yet been communicated. But everything points to day 4 being played in the Metropolitan against Portugal and the day, with Lithuania, in Leganés or Alcorcón.
Already in mode Eurocup, Spain will train the day before playing with Sweden in La Cartuja, but the previous matches against Poland (day 19) and Slovakia (23) will be held in Las Rozas and the team will travel in the afternoon to sleep in Seville.
