De La Fuente fronts new era for Spain

Replacing Luis Enrique as manager of the national team following Spain's disappointing round of 16 exit to Morocco in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Luis de la Fuente was able to guide La Furia Roja to Euro 2024 in relatively comfortable fashion - finishing top of their qualifying group ahead of Scotland in second.

After a rocky start to his tenure, losing 2-0 to Scotland at Hampden Park in his second match in charge, De La Fuente led Spain to the 2023 Nations League title with a penalty shootout victory over Croatia in the final, before inspiring a six-match winning run in Euros Qualifying which saw the Spaniards book a place in Germany this summer.

Spain notched an impressive 22 goals in this six-match winning sequence, which included a 7-1 demolition of Georgia in Tbilisi and revenge over Scotland in a 2-0 home win over Steve Clarke's side.

Although skippered by Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, Manchester City midfield lynchpin Rodri has arguably developed into the true face of this current Spain team, with the 27-year-old's presence in the middle of the park likely to be key to his country's hopes at the Euros in Germany.

Rodri is one of three Premier League players to make up De La Fuente's provisional 29-player Euros squad, alongside Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya and Chelsea full-back Marc Cucurella.

Formerly the national team coach at Under 19s, Under 21s and Under 23s level, De La Fuente has picked a youthful Spain squad to take to Germany, with promising Barcelona trio Lamine Yamal, Pau Cubarsi and Fermin Lopez all included.

Although not at the same level of the record-breaking Spain side which won three consecutive major tournaments between 2008 and 2012, De La Fuente undoubtedly has a talented crop of players at his disposal and La Furia Roja should go to Germany confident of going deep into the tournament.

A strong end to Euros qualifying helped De La Fuente assert some credibility in his new role, but it is ultimately at the finals where the managers of the biggest nations are judged.

Faith in youth

Given De La Fuente's experience of working with Spain's youth sides, it is perhaps little surprise to see the senior squad made up of so many young players under his stewardship.

In De La Fuente's provisional Euros squad, there are eight players aged 24 or younger.

These young players will not simply be travelling to Germany to make up the numbers either, with elite talents such as Barcelona trio Cubarsi, Pedri and Yamal and Athletic Bilbao forward Nico Williams firmly in contention for starting berths.

Midfield playmaker Pedri, who enjoyed a breakout Euro 2020 where he was named Young Player of the Tournament, will be key to Spain's renowned reputation for dominating possession no matter the opposition in Germany.

In Yamal, Spain possess one of the most exciting young attacking talents in world football, with the Barcelona prodigy having netted two goals in his first six caps for his country.

If De La Fuente's Spain are to make a dent at Euro 2024, expect their success to be inspired by youth.

Lacking bite?

Although Spain undeniably boast a strong squad ahead of the Euros, there are some lingering question marks over the quality of their attacking options at the highest level.

In De La Fuente's squad, only skipper Alvaro Morata registered over 10 league goals throughout the duration of 2023/24.

Considering Morata is a very divisive player himself, with the ex-Real Madrid and Juventus man at times wasteful in front of goal, Spain's lack of a bonafide world-class striker could be what holds them back from claiming a fourth Euros title.

A blunt attacking edge is what clearly let La Furia Roja down in the World Cup two years ago, with the Spaniards enjoying 77% possession against Morocco but ultimately knocked out on penalties following a goalless draw after 120 minutes.

This Spain team will be characteristically dominant in possession, but they simply do not possess forward options of the calibre of the likes of David Villa, Fernando Torres and Pedro at present.

There are high hopes for attacking prospects Yamal and Nico Williams in Spain, but it is perhaps too early for the nation to hang their hopes on such young players.

Perhaps this summer's Euros in Germany could give a glimpse of glory yet to come for Spain, as opposed to glory itself.
