Lamine Yamal and Pedri González, two of FC Barcelona's talented players, appear well placed to become key figures in the Spain national team. In fact, they are already leaving their quality mark on Euro 2024

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has showed in the last years be an important source of talent for the selection of Spain. During the World-wide of South Africa 2010, in which Spain consecrated champion, the 'Red' had a significant base of players of the Barcelona cast, having until seven footballers of the club in his payroll.

Now, in the Eurocopa 2024 that is contesting in Germany, although the presence of elements of the combined Catalan is lower, with so alone four representatives, at least two of them promise to have a leading paper in the selected directed by Luis de la Fuente: Lamine Yamal and Pedri González, two youngsters 'jugones' that seem to have the capacity to load on his shoulders the responsibility to be referents of the team to so short age.

The first sample of this could appreciate in the inaugural meeting against Croatia (3-0) in this continental tournament. Although the goleadores of the meeting, Álvaro Morata, Fabián Ruiz and Dani Carvajal, hoarded the focuses, can not ignore the influence that the one of Rocafonda and the one of Tegueste exerted on the terrain of game, leaving grandísimas feelings after this performance against the 'ajedrezados'.

Lamine Yamal 'went out' in front of Croatia

In particular, in the commitment against the Balkan, Lamine Yamal, in his first competition of this type with Spain, showed destellos of his innegable quality. It did not matter him measure to one of the best defenders of the Premier League, Joško Gvardiol, and dominated the left side with an electrical rhythm, speed and dribblings indescifrables, showing once again that it is a special player.

Besides, the Hispanic-Moroccan was very near to annotate a goal with a shot crossed to the right stick of the goal of Livaković. If it did not go by the big pulled of the guardameta Croatian, that finish crossed of left leg would have been goal and a direct contribution to the marker. Added to this, thanks to him and to the excellent centre that was able to put in the area for Dani Carvajal, the 'Red' attained to sentence the meeting with a marker of 3-0.

In spite of his scarce 16 years, the Barcelona right extreme already is obtaining prominence like one of the key names in the attack in the plans of Luis de la Fuente. In fact, in the clash against the Balkan, trusted him a direct free shot in the frontal of the area, which is a detail to take into account. To his time, constantly carries the game by his band, a responsibility that seems to not to weigh him. Even, in this party, contested 86 minutes, touched the balloon six times inside the rival area, made three finish, centred in three occasions and created three opportunities to annotate.

Pedri Already begins to recover his version more 'magic'

In the case of Pedri González, the history is similar. The one of Tegueste already has showed his importance for the selection of Spain during a time. Nevertheless, his announcement for the Eurocopa was uncertain because of a season 2023/24 in the FC Barcelona that was marked by injuries that prevented him play with total regularity.

However, the Canarian has showed quickly that it would have to be one of the immovable pillars of the selection when it is in full form. The '20' of the 'Red' already had annotated a doublet in a friendly against Northern Ireland (5-1) previous to the debut in the Eurocopa in front of Croatia, but now, in the official competition against the Balkan, has showed to be a differential player, exerting in a more freed role behind the referential tip.

In fact, Pedri had the opportunity to leave his footprint in the commitment against the 'ajedrezados', since it assisted to Fabián Ruiz in the second annotation of the meeting, which, by the way, also originated by an intervention of Lamine Yamal. In front of this, is not an extrañeza that already begin to gestarse a big connection Lamine-Pedri that promises to bring a lot of joys to the Spanish selection and that it can strengthen even more in the FC Barcelona.
