Veteran star remains key to Spain’s Euro 2024 plans

Veteran star remains key to Spain’s Euro 2024 plans

Spain kicks off their Euro 2024 campaign against Croatia on June 15 in Berlin.

La Roja has been placed in a difficult group, paired with Croatia in Group B, alongside defending champions Italy and Albania.

Luis de la Fuente is still assessing his options on who will start against Zlatko Dalic’s experienced team, but some decisions have already been made.

Defense is a key focus for De la Fuente and he is expected to remain loyal to veteran Aymeric Laporte at centre-back despite missing recent games.

De la Fuente has dismissed reports that Laporte is suffering from chronic injuries, with precautionary measures leaving him out of the previous squad while he remains in Saudi Arabia.

Laporte’s place in De la Fuente’s 11th squad appears to have been finalized and the Spanish head coach has tipped him for a key role at the tournament.

Laporte has not been injured, he had discomfort and for me he is one of the best in his position,” said Marca.

Laporte is the highest-capped centre-back in the Spanish squad and the third most internationally experienced defender in the panel.
