Madrid Pair making case for Spain Squad
The wait for the World Cup is getting that bit shorter, and with that players will - despite mainly claiming otherwise - places for Brazil on their minds. Some may think that looking at current Euro and World Cup holders Spain, that the squad is mostly known, but a few players form has left Vicente Del Bosque with some decisions of his own.
You're unlikely to see anything spectacular in terms of the Spanish's starting Line Up. The usual suspects of Ramos, Pique, Xavi and Iniesta will all be there. However the emergence of a Youngster at Ramos' Real Madrid is one unexpected player who could earn a place. After re-joining Real from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, Right-Back Daniel Carvajal has slowly cemented his place in the clubs eleven. Now pretty much first choice in his position at club level, he will be wanting to gain his first cap as a Full International. Part of the Success at the Euro Under-21 Championships, he must be in Del Bosquse's mind. With almost thirty games for Madrid this campaign, he will feel he has a good chance.
Verdict - With Spain arguably a bit short for cover in Defence, will surely make squad.
Real Madrid also provide the other possibility for Spain. The clubs academy product Jesé has managed to push the likes of Benzema and Bale for starting places this season. In total he has deaturrd in twenty eight games so far this campaign, which is no mean feat when you consider he is vying with the afore mentioned Bale, Benzema and has arguably moved infront of last summers 'Wonderkid' buy Isco in the pecking order. He may yet cost the ex-Malaga Attacking Midifelder a place in Brazil. A noticeable plus for the starlet has been his ability to play anywhere in the attacking third. Having an eye for goal is never a bad thing either.
Verdict - Good chance of Sneaking Sqaud. Won't be guaranteed any games unless injuries.
