Wolverhampton Wanderers ace Adama Traore has been called up to the Spain squad for Euro 2020.

The 25-year-old has got the nod from Luis Enrique, despite having not had the best of seasons.

Traore started 2020/21 slowly, but has been one of Wolves’ best performers in recent months.

He made significant contributions against the likes of West Ham United, Fulham, Sheffield United and Brighton, and it seems his turnaround was not lost on Enrique.

His 24-man squad has caused a bit of controversy today as it includes no Real Madrid players, not even the legendary Sergio Ramos.

But Traore is in, and he’ll now get the chance to shine on a huge stage at his first senior international tournament.

 

The former Middlesbrough man has taken to social media following the news of his inclusion.

It’s clear he is extremely grateful for the opportunity afforded to him.

He wrote: “This is the photo of my second call for @Sefutbol that I had to leave because of Covid.

“Obstacles and doubts always arise on the road. Work is the only answer. Thank you for the opportunity.

“Looking forward to starting the road.”
