Luis Enrique has announced the players called up for Euro 2020 which will be played between June 11 and July 11. The most unusual news is that the captain of the team, Sergio Ramos, will not play in Euro 2020. It has not been the only surprising absence, as neither will Nacho Fernández, Íñigo Martínez, Jesús Navas, Sergio Canales or Iago Aspas.
From the Ciudad del Fútbol de las Rozas, the Spanish coach has announced the list of players called up for Euro 2020. 24 Spanish players who will try to repeat the feats of Iker Casillas or Xavi Hernández in 2008 and 2012.

Sergio Ramos will not play in Euro 2020
The Real Madrid player and captain of the Spanish national team, Sergio Ramos, has not been called up by the Asturian coach to play in Euro 2020. The reason that has led Luis Enrique to leave him out is his long period of inactivity. Sergio Ramos has not competed since January due to a knee injury. In the words of Luis Enrique it has not been an easy decision, and he has made the right decision for the whole team.
Nacho Fernández, Íñigo Martínez, Jesús Navas, Sergio Canales and Iago Aspas lose the European Championship.
