The new ‘trident’ of the national team

The selection They finished the first matches of the qualifying phase for the Qatar World Cup in 2022. La Roja added seven points out of the possible nine, but the sensations they left are not what everyone expected, leaving many doubts with the European Championship at the gates.

Of these three games, one of the great conclusions that can be drawn is that the national team has a new trident. Not in attack, if not on the left wing. A trident formed by Jordi Alba, Pedri and Dani Olmo.

Luis Enrique lor he put in the second half of the Georgia game and the selection began to come back from there. With Elm acting more on the inside than extreme, Jordi Alba He has the entire left wing to go up to the attack, tracing what he does at Barça. And that means creating a lot of danger.

That benefits Pedri that he needs spaces to be able to deploy all his football and that Jordi Alba and Olmo generate them for him is a blessing for the young Barça player who has made a niche for himself in the starting team of La Roja.

Dani Olmo It is the third ‘leg’ of this trident and it is key because it gives Jordi Alba freedom in the band and, acting in the center, he gives Pedri that line of inside passes. Olmo has taken advantage of all this, scoring against Georgia and Kosovo after receiving the ball from Jordi Alba.

Thus the things, the trident formed by Jordi Alba, Pedri and Dani Olmo seems fixed in the selection.
