Five players to watch out for

- Mikel Oyarzabal

A player linked with a move to Manchester City according to reports, Mikel Oyarzabal is a player to watch out for. The Spanish attacker will most definitely play in the number nine position, with Spain's national team having no natural striker in the squad.

- Lorenzo Insigne

Lorenzo Insigne has shown what he is capable of in the 2020 Euros competition and he is definitely on this list. The veteran attacker will be a constant threat to the Spanish defense, and Cesar Azpilicueta, who will most likely play at right-back for Spain, will have to be in his best form.

- Pablo Fornal

The debutant, Pablo Fornal, will aspire to impress the manager on his first call after an impressive performance with English club, West Ham. The attacking midfielder will be the distributor of passes and he will be centered at the heart of the Span attack.

- Jorginho

The Chelsea star, Jorginho, will be the link between the Italian national team's attack and the defense. The Italian playmaker is a player to watch out for because he needs more trophies to contest for the Ballon d'Or award.
