Modric tests the reliability of De la Fuente’s ‘España Fútbol Club’

The majestic Olympic Stadium in Berlin, a stadium that exudes History (with capital letters), will be the setting in which Luis de la Fuente’s Spain will prove its impact in one of the most open European Championships in recent times. ANDl de Haro has modeled a choral proposal with a discreet profile in the media that aspires to be a club more than a national team: España Fútbol Club.

Spain Football Club

A proposal that puts the ball in the center and that has some features that will make Spain a recognizable team with and without the ball. The non-negotiable premise is to overcome, or equal, the rival’s intensity and from there impose their football talent. “If we want to win we must run as a small team,” Rodri warned. to his colleagues in a talk. He could have said “…we must run like Croatians.”

The ball must reach the corners quickly, where the two weapons appear to generate an advantage: the overflow of Lamine and the electricity of Nico Williams. Ahead appears the enthusiasm of Álvaro Morata, a Stakhanovite of the attack that gives depth with his unmarking in space. Pedri, in a more version bellinghamiana, he will be seen more in the area with Rodri and Fabián, or Mikel Merino behind. With the realistic one the 4-2-3-1 is more marked and there is more balance. With the Sevillian the drawing tends to 4-3-3 and gains fluidity.

Carvajal will shield the right and on the left the choice of De la Fuente will reveal whether he is bolder or more cautious. If the chosen one is Cucurella, it will mean that he is more concerned about the Croatian. If he is Grimaldo, he will bet on defending himself by attacking. Nacho and Le Normand will form an atypical duo, two defensive specialists who lack the first pass of a Laporte without rhythm after ‘vacation’ in Arabia. And without Cubarsí the release of the ball will further enhance Unai Simón’s prominence. Without the ball it is a supportive group in which there is never a lack of help and that will subject the Croatians to suffocating pressure after losing. A young, versatile and deep team with resources up front, but more limited in defense.

Modric’s “warriors”

Face the worst possible rival for a fledgling Spain, the ultra-competitive Croatia, Modric’s “warriors”. Veterans of a thousand battles who adapt to any match environment with the naturalness that gives them “some automatisms more typical of a club than a team,” as Pablo Amo, De la Fuente’s second, warned. This Croatia is more complicated than the one that has faced Spain in the last major tournaments. Modric arrives with a full tank after a season in which Ancelotti has given him more quality minutes than volume. And the maturity of j is addedplayers who have taken a step forward such as Josko Gvardiol, who is projected in attack as a winger, Budimir, Kovacic, Pasalic or Stanisic.

Zlatko Dalic, the Croatian coach, an old fox on the board, has traps prepared. “Spain can kill you with possession, but it has variations. There is no desire for revenge. They beat us the last two times because they were better. “We want to win, not take revenge,” he warned, despite the fact that he left them without a title in the last Nations. His speed on the counterattack is directly proportional to Modric’s ability to filter passes. Football owes this European Championship to Luka,” said Rakitic. He says that it has become the Croatian mantra in German.
