Spain FIFA World Cup 2022 Preview


When it comes to playing on the international scene, Spain has long been a football powerhouse, but many feel that they have slipped in recent years. Since winning the 2010 FIFA World Cup, they haven't really put on a show throughout FIFA World Cup competitions. The reigning champions of the 2014 FIFA World Cup put on a disgraceful performance and were eliminated in the group stages.


Spain was eliminated by host nation Russia in the Round of 16 at the subsequent FIFA World Cup. Spain is still regarded as one of the top footballing nations in the world, despite their recent FIFA World Cup performances not living up to expectations. It will be fascinating to see how far they can advance in the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Although Spain has not been the best of teams in the world, with young talents like Pedri, Gavi, and Ansu Fati emerging, it will be foolish for any team to underestimate Spain’s talent going into the 2022 FIFA World Cup.


Who Is Spain’s Head Coach?


Spain’s head coach is Luis Enrique. Enrique’s most recent appointment for the Spanish national team. Enrique has not led Spain to any major titles in his time as their manager but his tenure has been a short one. He is still rebuilding the Spanish squad from scratch and it will be very interesting to see if he can lead Spain back to their former glory.


Spain’s Strengths And Weaknesses


One of Spain’s biggest strengths is the youngsters breaking into the new team. Players like Pedri and Ansu Fati have already broken into the main team with players like Gavi ready to break into the first team. With such talents breaking into the midfield, Spain have a very squad midfield. Their weakness is that in other positions they seem to lack the luster that other teams have which may fail to make them competitive going into this World Cup.
