The talent, more win them to win an important place inside a full changing room of stars, has ocasionado that the players '-21' are the engine of the picture culé in the last months. It is not casualidad that Ansu Fati (before his injury), Pedri González, Sergiño Dest, Ronald Araújo or Óscar Mingueza are standing out under the orders of Ronald Koeman and hardly surpass the majority of age.
