Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has been called up for Spain’s Euro 2020 squad.
The 25-year-old winger has been rewarded for an upturn in form at Molineux in the second-half of the 2020/21 season.
He will now have the chance to add to the five caps he has accrued since making his debut against Portugal back in October.
It’s fantastic news for Traore, who might have been feeling slightly concerned about his chances at one stage.
He was not called up by Luis Enrique during the last international break for the World Cup qualifiers against Greece, Georgia and Kosovo.
But he’s secured his seat on the plane, with Enrique seemingly pleased with what he has seen over the last few weeks.
Traore has definitely improved for Wolves during the final third of the season, and had brilliant games against the likes of West Ham United, Sheffield United, Fulham and Brighton.
He deserves it
He hasn’t had the best of seasons, but his performances should have warranted greater numbers in terms of goals and assists.
Quite often, he simply hasn’t had the support in the final third, and he has sometimes been too harshly criticised.
At the end of the day, everyone knows the havoc he can cause, and he could make a real difference for Spain at Euro 2020.
