MADRID, 20 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Spanish women’s soccer team will try to maintain its current high level this Thursday when it is measured in a friendly at the Principe Felipe de Cáceres Stadium (8:00 p.m. / Teledeporte) to a Morocco that seems in theory affordable.

The national team returns to action and does so in a sensational state of form and the feeling of still having a better margin, which less than a year before the European Championship in England causes expectations to be growing in the face of the continental event .

Twelve consecutive games ended with victory, 67 goals for and none against is a business card that few teams can present today. Spain has not lost since March 2020, at the gates of the pandemic and against the United States, the current world champion and the last one capable of scoring a goal.

This international ‘window’ is not presented, in principle, as the possible one in which this great streak is slowed since both Morocco and Ukraine, rival next Tuesday in an official match and corresponding to the qualifying phase for the World Cup. 2023, they do not seem to have the necessary level to beat a team that never tires of continuing to grow.

“All international matches serve us, it will be the first time we play against Morocco, surely for them it is also a good opportunity. We expect a match against a rival in a low block but they can win the second plays and they can hurt the games. transitions, “Jorge Vilda warned at a press conference.

The North African team is the current number 81 in the FIFA ranking, which leaves it as the eighth of the African Confederation, and its mission in Prince Felipe will be to try to endure as long as possible and take advantage of the duel to accumulate international experience .

For his part, Vilda could take the opportunity to continue testing parts and different systems. Atlético de Madrid midfielder Maitane López, a great novelty on the list, could have the opportunity to debut in a team that recovers key players such as striker Jennifer Hermoso, or defenders Leila Ouahabi and Irene Paredes compared to the previous break. Instead, ‘Mapi’ León will be out at the last minute due to an acute neck pain, but she will be ready for Ukraine.
