Former Real Madrid midfielder and Spain’s national team coach, has done the unthinkable, naming a squad without Blancos players.
Real Madrid have been a major part of the Spanish national team success, as they have had their players captain La Roja for over 20 years, since 1998. Now, Enrique named a Madrid-less squad.
The 51-year-old gaffer has become the first manager in history, to name a Spanish national team without a Real Madrid player.
The big question is, is Enrique right to drop all the Real Madrid players? And were the replacements the best options?
Ramos has had an injury ravaged season, but still made 15 La Liga appearances, while Nacho Fernandez had an outstanding season for Real Madrid. Dani Carvajal is understandably left out of the team.
Manchester City duo of Aymeric Laporte, who just got his Spanish nationality, made 16 league appearances, and Eric Garcia, who had just 6 Premier League caps were called up.
Key Spaniards in the Real Madrid squad, who were omitted are Marco Asensio, Lucas Vasquez, and midfielder Francisco “Isco” Alarcon.
Which player do you think should have made the list?
