Nations League: which selection for the big rehearsal before the World Cup?

It is not yet the list where it is imperative to be there but the last selection of Roberto Martinez which he will give this Friday at noon will offer serious indications on the faces which will make the trip to Qatar in less than two months.

For the last rally before the World Cup, the Spanish technician should not upset his group for the clashes against Wales and the Netherlands. For the called elements, there will be the challenge of achieving a 6/6 to surpass the Dutch and climb into the Final Four of the League of Nations for the second time.

Above all, it will be a question of showing off to your advantage one last time before the official announcement.

The unknown lies mainly in his management of the Denayer case. The former Lyonnais, at the end of his contract with the Rhodaniens, has still not found a club and it is legitimate to wonder if he will put on the Red Devils jersey again when he has not played a minute. this season as Foket touched the hamstring. Debast could take advantage of this particular case to make his first appearance.

Like the last rally, Theate and Faes should also take advantage of the situation to reappear, especially since the first city has had an excellent start with Rennes, its new formation. The repositioning of Witsel in central defense at Atl├ętico Madrid by Diego Simeone also presents a new opportunity for the coach in this sector.

Lavia, the big loser

In midfield, Lavia should have been called up after his thunderous baptism with Southampton but his hamstring injury, which left him out for at least another month, deprived him of the joys of a first selection.

As for the attacking sector, Doku, who has just resumed training with Rennes after a quadriceps problem, will be too short.

Martinez will also have to deal without Lukaku, who is also plagued with muscle problems. Openda will take advantage of his great form with Lens (4 goals in 7 games) to apply for a starting spot while Lukebakio can hope to find the national team.
