There is controversy in the feminine football Spanish. Recently, the Real Spanish Federation of Football committed an omission to the not warning with antelación to the Spanish players that they could be summoned for the next stop of selections, that will carry out on 18 September. During this stop, Spain will initiate his participation in the Nations League the Friday 22 September against Sweden and on 26 September against Switzerland.

According to the regulation of the FIFA, such as it establishes in the Statute of Transfer of Players, each federation that wish to summon to a member of a team in particular "will have to do it by writing at least 15 days before the first day of the international period in which they carry out the activities of the representative team for which needs him ". In this case, it did not fulfil with this requirement, what could carry to the clubs to deny and oponerse to yield to his footballers.

The Spanish players expose to hard sanctions if they do not attend the called of the selection

Nevertheless, in spite of this setback, the players summoned are forced to attend the called of the new seleccionadora, Montse Tomé, if like this it requires it. This poses a problem, since the FIFA is an entity of private character and can not prevail on the juridical legislation Spanish, in this case, the Law of the Sport.

Besides, it exists the possibility of sanctions according to the Disciplinary Code of the Spanish Federation of Football, that establishes hard penalties for the players that do not fulfil with the announcement of his national selection. The article 65 of said regulation establishes the following: "the footballers that, of form no justified, do not assist or abandon the announcements of the National Selections, understanding like such the trainings, concentrations or the effective celebration of parties or competitions, will be sanctioned with fines that oscillate between the 3.006 and the 30.051 euros", between other severe sanctions.

The Spaniards that play abroad are exentas of this situation

Therefore, it remains clear that the footballers that play in Spain and are summoned to the selection have to attend, of the contrary could lose his licence. The only that they could avoid this problem are those that play abroad, since, according to the rule of the FIFA, would not be forced to assist and this would not affect his participation in his respective national competitions, where himself would have licence to compete.
