Diaz, Spanish footballer of the sub-21, did not jump to the training camp with the rest of his teammates as he stayed in the hotel due to a foot contusion caused by a stomp received in Wednesday’s victory against Slovenia (0-3).
As EFE learned, it is nothing serious and, so far, his participation in Saturday’s duel against Italy (9:00 p.m. CET) is not in danger. The Milan footballer, on loan from Real Madrid, was left doing recovery work instead of walking to the training site to avoid unnecessary support. The Malaga player played 58 minutes in the debut and gave the first goal assist to Javi Puado.
The rest of the starters did a gentle stretching and activation session on the field of play and later returned to the hotel to continue with recovery exercises. The rest worked at a good pace already thinking about the next match against Italy, which, as Luis de la Fuente assured in the press conference after the victory against Slovenia, “could be decisive”.
The transalpine team drew against the Czech Republic (1-1) and, in addition, will be suspended due to suspension after being expelled Sandro Tonali, one of the figures of this European, and Riccardo Marchizza. If they win, Spain would lead by five points to the, a priori, great rival of Group B, putting their qualification for the qualifying rounds on track.
