Postpone the Olympic games of this summer to the 2021 has been a hard hit for the sport, but a good decision in front of the complicated current situation by fault of the coronavirus. But in terms futbolísticos, in spite of everything, this wait of a year could finish being even positive for the Spanish selection. Already it has confirmed that all the ones of the generation of the 1997 will be able to attend to the tournament, but in addition to them, other big promises of the Spanish football also aspire to be in Tokyo.

The COI has done the exception by this time and the tournament will be Sub-24 so that they can attend the generations of all the countries that went to be this summer. In Spain will be able to go the Dani Elm, Borja Mayoral, Mikel Oyarzabal, Carlos Soler or Unai Simón, among others. But all they go to have competition in the new generations that in 2021 go to aspire to go in in the announcement of Luis de la Fuente.

There are several footballers that this summer went to have it very complicated to be in the Games, but that in 2021 could have a lot of more options. One of them is definitely Ansu Fati, that after having stray leadership with Quique Setién had almost impossible to be between the 18 elected. The extreme, with a year more than experience in the elite and perhaps with a more important role, could have more possibilities inside a year. Everything will depend of the paper that give him in the FC Barcelona, since of his quality anybody doubt.

Another player blaugrana that it could have more options in 2021 is Carles Aleñá, that with almost total security did not go to be in 2020. It was one of the called to lead to the new selection Sub-21, but the few minutes that had in the Barça until winter condemned him. It left to explain and not even his course to the Betis has changed his situation. It says that this next campaign will go back to the Camp Nou and will be more important, something that could ensure him a place in the list for the Games, since quality him leftover.

Other perlas that could have options to go in 2021

In addition to them, other jewels of the Spanish football that they could have more possibilities to be with Spain in 2021 are Marc Cucurella, Brahim Díaz, Óscar Rodríguez or Eric García. Also Ferrán Torres, although the one of Valencia already had an almost ensured place in 2020 after his temporadón. In the case of the others, will be key that do a good campaign so that Luis de la Fuente take them into account.

Cucurella was going out In the Getafe and even has called the attention of several big of Europe. Already it had serious options to be in this year in the Games, but in 2021, if it follows as up to now, would have to be one of the fixed. By quality, Brahim would have to have been in the fight this 2020, but hardly has played in the Real Madrid and did not have any possibility to go. If it goes out yielded, as it seems that sucederá, yes could go, since has spare quality as to stand out in the elite.

On the other hand, Eric already is a fixed in the Sub-21 with alone 19 years and in the City Pep Guardiola is giving him minutes little by little. Another year more could serve him to be with Spain in Tokyo. Finally, Óscar carries two years shining in the Leganés and has strengthened in the Sub-21, but neither went to have possibilities to go this summer. It says that the Madrid will recover to the midfield player to go back it to yield to a club of greater entity that the pepinero. In this case, the one of Talavera, if it surrenders as it has done it in Butarque, yes could have more options, since would have more visibility.
