Athletic reached the break for the World Cup in the Champions zone


Athletic reached the break for the Qatar World Cup in the Champions zone. After completing the fourteenth matchday in the league, the lions continue in fourth position tied on points with Atlético de Madrid, fifth, and Betis, sixth. The Verdiblanco team lost yesterday 3-0 in their visit to Valencia at the Mestalla.

La Real, who are third in the table, lead Valverde’s men by two points. Rayo de Iraola, who did not go beyond yesterday’s draw in Vallecas against Celta (0-0), remains eighth with two points less than the lions and Osasuna dropped to seventh position.

Athletic, meanwhile, returned to work today in Lezama after enjoying a rest day yesterday. This morning session of the lions will be marked, at least initially, by the list of Luis Enrique’s squad for the imminent World Cup in Qatar. Valverde could be left without the support of some lions when the team returns to activity after the nearly two weeks off he intends to give them.

Unai Simón’s presence with Spain is a given as the Álava goalkeeper has been a starter at La Roja for some time now. His League career at club level also falls within a more than acceptable line of regularity. There seems to be no doubt about his presence in Qatar.

The same is happening with Iñaki Williams. The rojiblanco striker made his debut in the Ghana team, the country of his parents, a few weeks ago. The Bilbao native will therefore not miss the World Cup.

From there, the doubts

They are not the only Athletic names that look like internationals ahead of this world championship. Iñigo Martínez is one of the regulars in Luis Enrique’s calls, but he himself hesitated when asked about his chances in this regard. Time to wait, therefore.

Nico Williams, who had a good debut with the Reds, seems to have been called up for this World Cup as well. Oihan Sancet’s name has been out for a long time and Yeray, Athletic’s fittest central defender, is even included in the final list. Everything will be solved today.
