Morata and Rodri end up affected, but transmit good news

A clash with Sutalo at the beginning of the second half, in an action that did not end miraculously in a goal by Lamine Yamal, ended up leaving Álvaro Morata out of action in the debut of the Spanish National Team against Croatia. After the 65th minute, the forward said enough and lay down with discomfort in his left leg, something similar to the classic ‘sandwich’ which did not prevent him from continuing for a few minutes but which, finally, was important enough for Luis de la Fuente to replace him with Mikel Oyarzabal.

At the end of the match, in the La1 flash interview, the forward, still from Atlético de Madrid, conveyed tranquility: “When you have a strong blow you notice that other parts of your leg feel heavy and that is what happened to me. The best thing for the team was for another teammate to come out for me and give everything. I’m ready for Italy. “I’m fine, it’s just a blow.”.

Morata, after being substituted, being treated with ice.

Previously, Morata had agreed with the coach who, like the previous ones, had opted for the Madrid native as Spain’s ‘nine’. The Atlético de Madrid player scored his 36th goal with the National Team. He broke the tie with Silva and is already the fourth best scorer in the history of national football. Furthermore, he is only two behind Fernando Torres. And, incidentally, he scored his seventh goal in the final stages of the Euro Cup. He is the third all-time top scorer, tied with Griezmann and only two behind Platini. Cristiano, at 14, is in another dimension.

Morata’s injury is not expected to be significant in the National Team’s medical staff.. This Saturday he was replaced by Oyarzabal. Joselu stayed in the bedroom for the match against Italy, but the forward’s intention is to be at the Gelsenkirchen game next Thursday (9:00 p.m.).

Rodri, also out

Morata was not the only one who ended up injured in the game. Rodrigo also went down in the 85th minute of the game with discomfort in the back of his left leg. It should be remembered that the Manchester City player is the member of the National Team who has played the most minutes this season. With the 85 minutes against Croatia, he surpasses 5,000 minutes played this season. Rodrigo was replaced by Zubimendi and it is also expected that his discomfort will not get worse. As AS has learned, the Manchester City player is fine “and only his calves have gone up.” Rodri himself, after the meeting, stated that “everything is fine, without problems.”
