Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos is expected to start for Spain in their upcoming match against Scotland, marking his first start in an official match since October 2019.
The 25-year-old made an impactful 30-minute appearance against Norway, demonstrating his ability to unbalance opponents and create opportunities through his talent and link-up with teammates.
Spain’s coach, Luis de la Fuente, has shown confidence in Ceballos and is likely to hand him a start for the match at Hampden Park after bringing him off the bench in the first match of this international break in which Rodri tried to injure Martin Odegaard. [Odegaard fitness update here]
Ceballos’ performance in the midfield could be crucial to Spain’s success in the upcoming League of Nations competition in June.
With the opportunity to win the tournament, the focus will be on Ceballos and other key players to bring their best to the national team.
The Spanish coach undoubtedly hopes that Ceballos’ future club destination will provide him with ample playing time, allowing the midfielder to maintain and improve his form for the national team.
Dani Ceballos’ return to the national team comes as clubs like Atlético de Madrid express interest in the talented midfielder for next season as his contract with Real Madrid expires.
