Eric García is being going through a bad patch in the Manchester City, where almost does not play and where carries a season for the forget for having denied to renew. Since it did official that the central did not go to be followed in the Etihad from summer, Pep Guardiola left to have he of usual form and is from does months one of the last of the row in the group 'cityzen'.

The defender has contested so alone 15 minutes in the last 21 parties of Premier League and on were this past weekend, by what chained 20 consecutive meetings without playing. By this reason, surprised a lot of when Luis Enrique called him to play with Spain in this stop of selections. The technician showed to have blind confidence in him and left clear that it is one of his personal bets for the Eurocopa.

But the seleccionador did not leave that this announcement was a mere anecdote, like sucedió for example with Riqui Puig and his call with Spain Sub-21, and this past Thursday decided to trust Eric to play in front of Greece the crash of classification to the World-wide of Qatar 2022. The defender split in the eleven initial at the side of Sergio Bouquets and completed the 90 minutes against the Greeks.

In spite of his inactivity, the Barcelonan showed in good form and did not seem that it carried so much time without playing a whole duel.

Eric, very comfortable going out from backwards with balloon

In front of the Greeks, Eric had a pair of errors in the delivery in the first minutes of the party, but further of this, has showed very hit with the ball. The exit of balloon in driving or through the pass is one of his big arms and in front of the helenos showed it in a lot of occasions. Spain had the possession almost at all times and this forced to the defence to play advanced and to go out playing many times.

García happened of the midfield in a lot of occasions to beat the first line of pressure of Greece, that put his block very backwards and that forced to that the Spanish defender had to do this very often. The one of the City moves perfectly in this type of meetings, by what did not cost him adapt to this requirement. Besides, it saw him fast in the crossing and intuitive in the anticipation, something that practises a lot.
