The first list of Spain for the Eurocopa, dyed of blaugrana

As expected, Barça will be the base of the Spanish team in the European Championship in England that starts on July 6. Although the official list of the 23 summoned will not be known until the end of June, it seems unlikely that any of the eleven Blaugrana players will jump out of the 28 pre-selected in Jorge Vilda's first list.

This Tuesday the Federation has published the name of those chosen to prepare the continental tournament and five of them will be discarded. Before noon the Spanish coach attended the press to explain the reasons for his election.

Aitana Bonmatí, Jenni Hermoso, Mapi León, Leila Ouahabi, Sandra Paños, Irene Paredes, Andrea Pereira, Claudia Pina, Alexia Putellas, Mariona Caldentey and Patricia Guijarro are the representatives of Barça, League and Cup champions, in addition to the Super Cup. The last two return to the squad after losing the last matches with the national team due to injury.

The second team with the most representatives in the red is Real Madrid, with seven selected (Teresa Abelleira, Ivana Andrés, Marta Cardona, Olga Carmona, Athenea Del Castillo, Esther González and Misa Rodríguez), although Claudia Zornoza is not among them, a of the notable absences.

Salma Paralluelo stands out among the new faces. The 18-year-old Villarreal striker is a rare bird in the world of sports, she already combines soccer with athletics and she has not yet opted for one of the two sports. On grass, she has been continental and world champion sub'17 with Spain, and on athletics tracks she is the current Spanish record holder of 400 hurdles sub'18 and 400 smooth sub'18 and sub'20 on indoor track.

Spain will begin the preparation phase on June 12 at the Ciudad del Fútbol in Las Rozas and will play their first friendly on June 25 against Australia at the Nuevo Colombino in Huelva. The first game of the European Championship will be against Finland on July 8 in Milton Keynes. Their group is completed by Germany and Denmark.
