Key Players: 

The big update is that the top two former Real Madrid stars Nacho and Sergio Ramos one of the greatest center-backs of all time have not been picked in the 26-man squad. Here is a look at the key players who have been chosen from the squad: 

Sergio Busquets:

Busquets has been a part of the 3 FIFA World Cups. This one happens to be his 4th. He is keen on winning the trophy this time around. He has 2 young faces in the mid-field with him. Gavi and Pedri are expected to be in the starting line-up with Busquets in the center mid-field. He has a lot of experience. Busquets have been around for a very long time. He has seen the highs and also seen the lows. More than his skill, his experience will be valued. He is also expected to lead the squad in the absence of Sergio Ramos. If he makes good chemistry with the strikers, Busquets can do real damage to the opposition.  

Dani Carvajal: 

From one experienced campaigner to another. Dani Carvajal has been a part of the Real Madrid squad for an eternity.  He was an integral part of the 2017 Real Madrid squad too which was an absolute riot. Dani has a lot of experience. He has also seen the best and the worst in the world. He will be forming the back line with the experienced campaigners, Jordi Alba and Cesar Azpilicueta. Dani has good ball control. He has a crisp vision too. He has effective knowledge of how to change the plank of the game. Carvajal can even move the ball around in case the Spanish team is in the lead.  

Predictions for FIFA World Cup 2022: 

Spain is a good team at the FIFA World Cup 2022. But in the FIFA World Cup 2022, they fall in Group E. Group E also has the likes of Japan and Germany. The only concern is if Japan is the dark horse. So, Spain will have to play their hearts out to make it to the round of 16. My prediction is that Spain will make it to the quarter-finals.
