Iraola recovers troops for the grand final due to promotion. The Rayo coach will finally be able to count on Luis Advíncula, after the side has fallen this Thursday from the definitive list of the coach of Peru, Ricardo Gareca, for the Copa América 2021. The defender will rejoin the franjirroja discipline in the next few hours and could be a starter against Girona this Sunday (Vallecas, 9:00 p.m.).
Peru has released Advíncula, after the Madrid club had requested his return for this last round of the playoff. The Federation of that country has also taken into account the will of the player, very involved in the search for the franjirrojo promotion. “I'm watching the Lightning. We have a good group and we have worked a lot to get where we are. God grant we can ascend“, said the soccer player in his last press conference.
Advíncula caused loss both in the first leg and in the return against Leganés since it was disputing with Peru the qualifying rounds for the next World Cup in Qatar. In fact, the right-back was one of the great protagonists in the victory (1-2) against Ecuador, since they scored the second goal of their team. Better result than the one harvested days before. Peru fell by a resounding 0-3 against Colombia, in a duel in which Fought he acted as a winger.
Iraola will have Advíncula available, but not his other international, Dimitrievski, which will face Austria in North Macedonia's Euro debut on Sunday. While, the presence of Baby and Saveljich is still in the air, both in discomfort, one on the shoulder and the other on the calf. The winger and the central defender continue to exercise on the sidelines, although they are by no means ruled out for these two life and death duels.
