The 2022 FIFA World Cup kicks off in less than a month. Further, MARCA reports that Luis Enrique has already submitted a list of 55 players. They are candidates for selection to the coveted competition. According to the report, most of the players Enrique selected are the same ones he used in the qualifying campaign and the UEFA Nations League.
Real Madrid defender dropped from World Cup tentative team
In the light, Real Madrid’s star player, Nacho Fernandez, was left off the roster. The veteran centre-back has been a professional player for Madrid since 2013. but despite his performance, he will not be included in the World Cup roster. Despite being one of the most effective defenders in Spain, veteran Nacho has not received much attention from the national squad, which has ‘puzzled’ Real Madrid.
Pau Torres, Inigo Martinez, Aymeric Laporte, Hugo Guillamon, Diego Llorente, and Eric Garcia are some players Enrique has selected to include in place of Nacho. Sergio Ramos is one of the players that Enrique has included. Despite his lack of success with PSG, the former Real Madrid significantly cuts because of his extensive career and leadership expertise.
Ramos, meanwhile, is not likely to cut the final 26-man shortlist Enrique plans to unveil on November 11. Indeed, Nacho fits the same description. Only Real Madrid’s Dani Carvajal and Marco Asensio are included in the preliminary roster.
