The women’s national team coach, Montse Tomé, finally presented this Monday at the Las Rozas Soccer City (Madrid), has offered her first squad list, which includes the majority of the world champions, with the main news from Mapi León and Patri Guijarro, who return, and Rosa Márquez and María Méndez, although with the significant absences of Jenni Hermoso and Alba Redondo.

After the presentation and the corresponding call had to be postponed this Friday due to the statement issued by 39 footballers, including 21 of the 23 world champions, asking for changes in the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and maintaining their resignation from the team Spanish, Tomé takes office for the first time with a first list that does include these footballers.

Thus, they maintain the block that lifted the trophy that accredits them as current world champions on August 20. The same three goalkeepers who traveled to the event appear in the call, Misa Rodríguez, Cata Coll and Enith Salon. While Irene Paredes, Olga Carmona and Ona Batlle are also present, in a defensive line to which the veteran Mapi León, one of the ’15’ rebels, returns.

They will not miss the Nations League duel against Sweden Aitana Bonmatí, the current Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas, María Pérez and Tere Abelleira, also world champions, in a midfield with the new additions of Guijarro and Rosa Márquez. In attack, Athenea, Navarro, Estsher González and Caldentey do repeat, although Jenni Hermoso, protagonist in recent weeks due to the kiss of Luis Rubiales, will not represent Spain.
