Spain has a number of matches scheduled to play within September and October as they play in a few friendly encounters as well as having to lock horns with Macedonia and other squads in order to see which team will be making their way into the 2016 Euro’s which is the next major international competition that is going to be taking place in France.
Even though Manchester United’s is going through a nightmare of a season, there still are some shining lights within the squad of Louis van Gaal and one of them is the Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea.
David de Gea is turning out to be a true candidate that can follow the legacy that was left behind by Edwin van der Sar. The Spanish shot-stopper was named in Vicente del Bosque’s list of players that will be featured in the upcoming matches of Spain.
The boss of Spain, Vicente del Bosque is making a number of changes as he has dropped a big name players from the squad including: Juan Mata, Gerrard Pique, Fernando Torres and Pepe Reina.
Vicente del Bosqe recently said that he wants to build a new generation of players as its time to rebuild the team from scratch. After Spain’s underwhelming campaign in the 2014 edition of the World Cup, Vicente del Bosque is planning on making even more changes as a way to avoid having to go through such disastrous tournaments in the near future.
Spain was knocked out of the 2014 World Cup during the group stages after they only managed to secure 1 victory in 3 matches and they had to witness Netherlands and Chile advance through.
Manchester United’s Louis van Gaal has been signing a lot of players in order to improve the squad of the Premier League club and there have also been a few players that had to leave Manchester United as they had no important or influential role to play at Old Trafford but David de Gea is one of the few players that has his spot secured in the squad. The Spanish goalkeeper has managed to stand out and stay fairly strong despite all of the recent abysmal matches.

England’s disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign saw them being unable to advance through the group stages and even though the blame has been put towards almost the entire squad, David Beckham has urged Steven Gerrard to continue performing for England and remaining being the captain of the team.
Beckham said: ”Obviously I have been there. I played for England for quite a few years and captained England. But it’s one of the things I miss out of my whole career. I miss playing for Manchester United, I miss playing for Real Madrid, but England’s always been my real number one passion and playing for England always meant more to me than anything else. So for me it’s the thing I miss playing for England. I think it would be great if Steven continues because it was a disappointing tournament for the whole team and the captain kind of takes the real kind of brunt of things’’
The next international tournament is the 2016 Euro’s and by that time Steven Gerrard will be 36 years old which is a very high age for a player and even more for a midfielder who has to be active and mobile throughout the entirety of a match.
Even at his elevated age, Beckham strongly believes that Gerrard has what it takes to continue being the leader that he has always been in the pitch as young players need someone to look up to and to be their mentor which according to Beckham, Gerrard can do that and play that role.
Not only has Gerrard been the captain of England for the past few years but he is an icon for Liverpool as one of the main figures in Anfield Road but his influence inside the pitch has been diminishing.
