Spain EURO 2024 Team: Who did Luis de la Fuente Called Up for Germany?

Spain is ready to attack their fourth European Championship title this year.

The Golden generation of Spanish football is now over since the last members of the generation, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, ended their international careers.

However, this does not mean that the Spain is without talents. They won the UEFA Nations League and they reached the semi-finals on EURO 2020. Luis de la Fuente took charge of Spain national team after Luis Enrique left. However, he kept the same philosophy Enrique had. They are combining the youth and experience! So far, it is a win-win situation.

Spain EURO 2024 Team


The major surprises is that Kepa Arrizabalaga and Robert Sanchez are both left out due to poor form and lack of minutes in Real Madrid and Chelsea respectively. This opened an opportunity for Alex Remiro from Real Sociedad to be the third choice for Spain team for European Championship in Germany. First two choices are Unai Simon from Athletic Bilbao and David Raya from Arsenal.

Name Club
David Raya Arsenal
Alex Remiro Real Sociedad
Unai Simon Athletic Club


No changes are expected in the back line. Aymeric Laporte moved to Saudi Arabia, but this did not cost him his spot on EURO 2024 in Germany. He will most likely be paired with Robin le Normand.

There is strong possibility that Alejandro Grimaldo will be left-back. The good games in Leverkusen this year granted him the spot in the first XI. Right-back is reserved to the Champions League winner, Dani Carvajal.

Name Club
Dani Carvajal Real Madrid
Marc Cucurella Chelsea
Alejandro Grimaldo Bayer Leverkusen

At the moment, the best defensive midfielder is Rodri. Spain national team has one of a kind. The player who bossed the midfield but also know to score the important goals when needed. Two youngsters from Barcelona, Pedri and Fermin Lopez are the creative force of the Spain team.

It is also expected that Fabian Ruiz will take a place in the first XI. He did really good job in PSG this season so he deserved the spot.

Alex Baena Villarreal
Fermin Lopez Barcelona

Barcelona’s Lamine Yamal is the best young player of the season. His place is cemented in the right-wing position. Alvaro Morata will have the central role definitely. Besides this, he is the captain of Spain national team.

Left-wing is doubtful. There are couple of contenders to this position including Dani Olmo, Nico Williams and Ferran Torres. Ayoze Perez had a great season in Athletic Bilbao.

Midfielders: Rodri, Zubimendi, Fabian Ruiz

Forwards: Yamal, Morata, Olmo.
