If Luis Enrique has shown something since he was in command of the Spanish National Team, it is that he hardly marries anyone. Whoever that player is. And that allows different readings. On the one hand, footballers must always give 100% to play, knowing that any slip can leave them out.
But, on the other hand, it also makes it very difficult for players to take positive synergies between them, since in each game they must build new playing relationships. Ultimately, it is more difficult to build a strong and reliable block. The duel against Kosovo it was a good proof of it.
Despite the fact that Spain dominated for a good part of the game, a team was seen to be too tender in many situations of the game, with communication errors, especially in the back, which could be very expensive.
Without a column
The numbers are not deceiving. Of the eleven players who jumped into the green against Kosovo, only five of them had started against Georgia, in the best match of the National Team in this national break. Unai Simón, Laporte, Soler and Ferran Torres were the ones who played both games starting from the starting eleven.
Marcos Llorente also repeated, but the Madrid midfielder played against Georgia in the center of the field while against Kosovo he had to start from the right side.
Luis Enrique wants to have them all plugged in, that they sit down with options to play. We will see what happens in the big events, when you have all your best troops in full condition. Will it rotate then?
