Enrique Justifies Ansu Fati’s Inclusion In Spain Squad For The World Cup. Luis Enrique hopes Ansu Fati can reclaim his top form as quickly as possible after including him in Spain’s World Cup squad.

La Roja’s 26-man tournament roster includes a few major surprises. Sergio Ramos, Thiago Alcantara, and Marc Cucurella are absent, while Fati returns to the national team.

The 20-year-old hasn’t played for Spain since October 2020, when he suffered a long-term knee injury. However, his recent return to action at Barcelona has convinced Enrique to call him out for the Qatar tournament.

 “Ansu is in a process of getting back to being the player he was before his injury,” Enrique told reporters.

 “He’s now totally recovered. He’s played a lot of games for his club. We can discuss when he’ll be back at his previous level, we all want that.”

Last week, Fati’s colleague Gerard Pique announced his unexpected retirement from the sport. The former Barcelona player was listed on Enrique’s preliminary World Cup roster, he admits.

 “Pique was on the provisional list because when I came up with the provisional list he was an active player,” Luis Enrique said.

“He’s a competitive machine, or he was. When I named the list of 55 I thought clearly [about him], not as a first option because the line has been one of continuity.”
