During the previous ones, normally he does not usually enter the pools. Nor does he play in the Spanish League. Few remember him at the moment of predicting who he will take Luis Enriquebut the Asturian coach is very aware of it. paul sarabia (30 years old) always complies and the coach knows it. That’s why he gave him his third consecutive start against Switzerland at the Stade de Geneve. In fact, only the versatile footballer from Madrid, Gavi and Unai Simón have started from the start in all the matches of this concentration to play the Nations League.

Y Sarabia It didn’t take him long to agree with the coach. Specifically, twelve minutes was what he needed to score a goal that gives life to the Spanish team and keeps him with all the options to qualify for the ticket to the Final Four for the second consecutive edition, something that no one has achieved so far and, as he said Luis Enrique at a press conference, it is an incentive for the Spanish team. The striker took advantage of a good cross from Marcos Llorente and threw himself with everything to push and practically get the ball into the goal.

It was the eighth goal of Sarabia as an international, who has been scoring in the last three concentrations of the Red. The striker from Madrid always seems covered, one of those who a priori is not counted on, but Luis Enrique It gives you more and more confidence. The PSG footballer, who played this past season on loan to Sporting de Portugal, has played 17 of the last 18 games for the national team. Only the semifinal of the European Championship last summer was lost, when Spain, precisely, was eliminated.

He seeks to be important in his club

Sarabia He is earning a place in the World Cup in Qatar and not only thanks to his performances with the Spanish team. In fact, it is owned by PSG -with whom two more years of contract, until 2024-, but faced with so much competition up in the French team, he knew how to step aside and decided to go out on loan this past season to Sporting de Portugal to have minutes and continue opting to be able to go to the selection.

In Portugal, played 45 games in all competitions, scoring 21 goals and giving 9 assists. Now he must return to Paris but he is already looking for a team to continue being important and reach the maximum at the Qatar event. At this level, he won’t cost you much. Neither find a new destination, nor be one of those chosen by Luis Enrique for the World Cup.
