La Roja are in Group B of Euro 2024

Pedro Porro, the Tottenham Hotspur defender has been left off the roster in favour of Premier League players Rodri, David Raya and Marc Cucurella for the Spain provisional squad for Euro 2024.

Pau Cubarsi, Lamine Yamal, and Fermin Lopez, the Barcelona wonderkids, have not been included, but Pablo Gavi was not, since he is still recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Joselu, a former Premier League player for Stoke City and Newcastle United and Real Madrid hero from the Champions League semifinal, has also been included in the team.

Speaking at the press conference, Spain boss Luis De la Fuente said: “All players have the same options to be in the Euro 2024, I want to make that clear from the beginning. This larger list is to minimize risks and also cover any unforeseen events.

“We are protecting ourselves and covering any contingency that could arise. Yes, there is overpopulation now, but the decisions that must be made to go to the 26 of the Euro Cup will be made.”

He added: “We look for what any coach looks for: find the best possible team.

“We have very competitive forwards. Regarding Ayoze Pérez , I think it is time to give him this opportunity.”
