Up to seven footballers from Atlético de Madrid they completed their commitments with their respective national teams on Tuesday. The most significant thing was the injury he suffered Joao Felix in Luxembourg-Portugal and that led him to leave the pitch before the break, with ankle discomfort. The player is awaiting tests to know the extent of these ailments.
Yannick Carrasco He also did not play for Belgium, as in the two previous games, due to physical discomfort. Thus he returns to the mattress discipline without having added a single minute with his selection. It should be remembered that the Belgian will not be at the disposal of Simeone for Sunday’s match at Sánchez Pizjuán for being sanctioned.
Vrsaljko did not participate in Croatia’s victory against Malta (3-0). The other four players who had commitments were starters. And three of them fell. Also, for the same result. Kondogbia in the defeat of the Central African Republic against Mauritania (0-1), Oblak against Cyprus (1-0) and Savic with Montenegro versus Norway of Haaland (0-1). The other, Herrera, also obtained that result with Mexico against Costa Rica, although in favor. The midfielder entered the field in the 68th minute to replace Jonathan dos Santos, with a tie still on the scoreboard.
The six footballers will return to Madrid this Wednesday, but it is planned that it will not be until Thursday when they can exercise normally with the group. That, the available ones, because we will have to pay attention to the physical state of Joao Felix and Carrasco.
This Wednesday the Spanish face their last meeting with their national teams Koke and Llorente before Kosovo; the French Lemar versus Bosnia; and English Trippier against Poland.
