Already qualified for Euro 2024 in Germany, La Roja welcomes Georgia this Sunday evening. This innocuous meeting on paper will be much less so for Lamine Yamal. The 16-year-old Barça striker will officially obtain Spanish nationality at the end of the meeting, for at least three years.
Already selected three times with the Spanish national team, the Catalan prodigy must still participate in a meeting for him to be affiliated with La Roja, for 3 years, according to the law. After the match against Georgia, the right winger will no longer have the possibility of playing for Morocco until 2026. Reassuring news for Spanish coach Luis de la Fuente who will be able to count on the young nugget Blaugranas for a few more years.
