Official: Ansu Fati included in Spain’s World Cup squad

The La Masia curated youngster and the Barca Starboy might have just completed his dream, as he got the national call-up to represent his nation at the 2022 Qatar World cup at such a young age, and it’s not a small feat.

Luis Enrique declared his selections for the Spain Camp today, and the new Barca number 10 bearer was one of the names who will be joining Lucho’s camp. Injuries haven’t been kind to him, but he has shown hints of returning back to his best, and the gaffer has full faith in his abilities.

He can be very useful to his side, as he has incredible shooting skills, and can be very clinical too. His conversion rate has slumped slightly, but he generates a lot of xG and it’s not long before he finds his best version.

The 20-year-old has scored 3 goals in La Liga this season, in 462 minutes, averaging 0.58 goals per 90. He has also gathered 3 assists in the Spanish Top flight, and given the context of his injury record and lack of game time is a good record in terms of output, ranking 4th in the Primera division with 1.06 Goals and Assists per 90.

He averaged 1.9 shots on target per 90, which is 35% of his total shots taken. He generates an xG of 0.94 per 90 which is the second-highest in the league. He is currently underperforming in terms of netting the ball, but the movement is there, and there is no better platform for him to regain his confidence than the biggest competition for the nations in football.

Along with Ansu, Pedri Gonzalez, Ferran Torres, Pablo Gavira, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, and Eric Garcia have also received an opportunity to don their National jerseys in the biggest jubilation of National football, and we would like to wish them all the best for their campaign.
