One of the surprises of the first announcement of Luis Enrique in the Spanish selection was the presence of Dani Ceballos, but has taken little in finding justification. The Andalusian shined in what the technician gave him the opportunity, something that leaves signalled to Zinedine Zidane

The arrival of the UEFA Nations League has seated well to the Spanish selection, that in his first meeting traced back to England and in the second lumbered with a 'set' to a Croatia subcampeón of the world. The combined that now it directs Luis Enrique keeps the big feelings and the firm step, adding new names to his changing room and freshening a team that goes back to be young and very promising.

Between the surprises of the first list of the Asturian was Dani Ceballos, but this Wednesday showed reason deserves a place. The Andalusian answered with a big performance to the opportunity that offered him his trainer, that after 'give him' 90 minutes surrendered to his feet in the back press conference to the clash.

"To Dani Ceballos have seen him infinity of times in the Sub21, and has done the same the day of his debut with the absolute. This is near at hand of very few players", signalled the one of Gijón, that continued elogiando to the midfield player of Utreta: "The things that already see him in the Madrid, the things that already had seen him in the Betis... It is a different player".

"It does not have any problem, does not lose balloons, holds the pressure, surpasses, gives last passes, big physical waste...", desgranó the technician, that also valued his effort to help to defensive level: "Today it has done him a mark to Modric during all the party that Modric has bored and has had to go for forward".

Finally, Luis Enrique left clear that this is only the principle, and that the call of Ceballos in his first announcement does not go to be circunstancial: "it Is a special player, different, of which there is not in the football. The day of his debut does a party like this, only can ask him more. If debuting accepts the challenge of this way... The truth is that I am very happy by him and gladden me a lot of".

Zidane ignored completely to Ceballos in the Real Madrid

If the arrival of Julen Lopetegui to the Real Madrid had given a break to Ceballos, more will be it the words of the seleccionador after a very painful stage to the orders of Zinedine Zidane. The marsellés ignored completely to some of the youngsters of the staff 'merengue', and the sevillano was one of the main victims turning into one of the less used players along the course, something that did not understand very well and even arrived to "burn him".

The own Dani Ceballos admitted few days backwards that it never understood the reason of his ostracism, and is that in spite of having had a residual participation in quite a lot of parties, in minutes hardly brushed the ten meetings with a total of 899 along all the season. The international ensured not saving grudge to the Frenchman, but at the same time aimed that this would have to learn of his errors. Sight the attitude of Lopetegui and Luis Enrique... Still they cost more than understanding his decisions.
