Spain U21 captain Iker Muniain said that players looking at the promotion of Munir El Haddadi to the first team were given a massive incentive to follow his ascent.
The U21 side of La Roja face Austria tomorrow and they’re doing their utmost to be summoned by Vicente del Bosque, having won all seven of their previous qualifiers.
A trail-blazer to keep an eye on is Unai Lopez.
The forward broke into the Athletic Bilbao first team this season, playing a crucial part in the dismantling of Napoli in the Champions League play-off before being called up for the U21s.
Here he shows off his skills in training with a superb end to a team move, performing a sombrero over the last defender before tucking away his strike. Tidy.
