Spain – Official squad for the 2022 World Cup: players, shirt numbers, coaches and officials

The first little surprise comes right in the goal: David de Gea from Manchester United was not included. Instead, Enrique Unai takes Simón, Robert Sánchez and David Raya with him. De Gea was last in the Spain squad almost exactly a year ago, and his last minutes of action are even further back: on October 13, 2020 in the Nations League game against Ukraine.

The next surprise follows in defense: Sergio Ramos, who is a regular in Paris Saint-Germain, was also not nominated. It would have been his fifth appearance at a World Cup finals. Nevertheless, the Spanish defense is impressive and is made up of top players from top clubs.

The fact that Thiago from Liverpool does not make it into the squad is also a surprise for many, although it has been a while since his last appearance for Furia Roja – at the European Championship in summer 2021. Enrique is represented by players like Rodrigo, Gavi, Pedri, Dani Olmo or Sergio Busquets available. Pablo Sarabia, Álvaro Morata and Ferran Torres will probably form the attack at the World Cup. Ansu Fati, Marco Asensio or others are also options.
