The new Spanish soccer coach, Louis of the Sourcehas included Ezequiel ‘Chimy’ Ávila in his squad list for the two commitments of the national team this March. The Argentinian striker could, thus, be one of the great novelties in the first call of the coach from La Rioja, for the matches against Norway and Scotland that will be played at the end of this month.
The Newspaper of Spain has confirmed the information provided by ‘Diario de Navarra’, which also talks about the inclusion of David García and Jon Moncayola in that preliminary list that De la Fuente has prepared. Although born in Argentina, Chimy holds Spanish nationalityTherefore, he does not need any additional procedure, unless the albiceleste also decides to summon him, in which case he would have to hold a formal election.
Avila is one of the ‘signings’ that shuffles perform De la Fuente. Another of them, as various media have reported, is the Frenchman Robin Le Normand. Unlike Chimy, the Real Sociedad center-back does not yet have Spanish nationality, so his call would be subject to that bureaucratic process, via the Council of Ministers.
De la Fuente values the goalscoring ability of the attacker born in Rosario 29 years ago, in a team that in recent times has been missing players with goals. The striker adds eight goals this seasonseven of them in LaLiga and one in the Copa del Rey.
The The final list of those summoned by De la Fuente is scheduled for March 17, if the RFEF maintains the habit of facilitating the call on the Friday prior to the concentration of the footballers, as was the case with Luis Enrique. Sergio Ramos will not be in it, as he himself announced on his networks.
