Spain’s men’s national team have unveiled their 26-man squad for the 2024 Euros in Germany. Head coach Luis de la Fuente churned out a list of experienced and top-class footballers as the three-time European champions prepare to contest for their 4th European crown.

Leading the list of players named in the squad is Al-Nassr defender and former Manchester City star Aymeric Laporta.

Brentford loanee to Arsenal and 2023-24 Premier League Golden Glove winner, David Raya, has also made the cut following an impressive campaign with the Gunners in the 2023-24 season.

Athletic Bilbao duo Unai Simons and Nico Williams have also made Luis de la Fuente’s cut, including their teammate Daniel Vivian.

Bayer Leverkusen sensation Alex Grimaldo, 28, who has made only 3 appearances for the team since making his debut lately in 2023, is set to add to his appearance tally as he makes the list. Prolific Atletico Madrid forward and former Chelsea star Alvaro Morata will spearhead the attack for La Roja.

Fast-rising Barcelona youngster Lamine Jamal will be making his first appearance in a major international tournament for the team after his recent breakout. Other Barcelona stars Fermin Lopez, Pedri, and Ferran Torres have also been named in the squad.

Manchester City’s Rodri, PSG’s Fabian Ruiz, and Real Madrid trio – Dani Carvajal, Nacho, and Joselu, are also included in the list.
