Spain Euro Squad 2024: Lamine Yamal and Fermin Lopez Included, Sergio Ramos Excluded

Many big nations have announced their provisional squads for the upcoming European championships in Germany this June, except La Roja. The winners of the European championships in 2008 and 2012 have announced their 29-man preliminary squad for Euro 2024 on Monday.

Spain Euro Squad 2024: Players who will be going to Germany

Barcelona teenagers Lamine Yamal, Fermin Lopez and Pau Cubarsí were included along with Premier League stars Rodri, David Raya and Marc Cucurella. Real Madrid stars Nacho, Dani Carvajal and Joselu returned to the first-team lineup whereas defenders Pau Torres, Sergio Ramos and Pedro Porro were excluded.

Spain manager Luis de la Fuente will have to trim the squad to 26 players before June 07, 2024. We understand that the inclusion of three extra players is to minimize the risks and be prepared for any contingencies. Let’s have a look at Spain Euro Squad 2024:

Goalkeepers: Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao), Alex Remiro (Real Sociedad), David Raya (Arsenal).

Defenders: Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Jesus Navas (Sevilla), Aymeric Laporte (Al-Nassr), Nacho Fernandez (Real Madrid), Robin Le Normand (Real Sociedad), Pau Cubarsi (Barcelona), Dani Vivian (Athletic Bilbao), Alex Grimaldo (Bayer Leverkusen), Marc Cucurella (Chelsea).

Midfielders: Rodrigo (Manchester City), Martin Zubimendi (Real Sociedad), Fabian Ruiz (Paris St-Germain), Mikel Merino (Real Sociedad), Pedri (Barcelona), Marcos Llorente (Atletico Madrid), Aleix Garcia (Girona), Alex Baena (Villarreal), Fermin Lopez (Barcelona).

Forwards: Alvaro Morata (Atletico Madrid), Joselu (Real Madrid), Dani Olmo (Leipzig), Nico Williams (Athletic Bilbao), Mikel Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad), Ayoze Perez (Real Betis), Ferran Torres (Barcelona), Lamine Yamal (Barcelona)

PSG and former Real Madrid Marco Asensio is the only surprise omission from the La Roja squad.

“I admire Asensio. Let’s focus on those who are here and give them the value they deserve,” coach De la Fuente said during a news conference on Monday.

“Others may have doubts, but I’m clear about it as of today. Maybe one of those players that now I’m thinking that wouldn’t make the cut for the tournament changes my mind and makes his case to deserve a place in the final 26-man squad.”

Luis de la Fuente’s men will participate in two friendly ties against Andorra and Northern Ireland before they take on Croatia on June 15 in Germany. Later, they play Italy on June 20 in Gelsenkirchen and close the group stage against Albania in Düsseldorf on June 24.
