Look Who Got Called Up!

7 Nov

B11xyeMIgAEOmU5So happy and proud of Calleti & Morata, who received a call up for La Roja’s matches against Belarus and Germany. I really hope that they get to make their debut. (Other n00bs: Nolito & the fabulously named Nacho Camacho). And congrats to our other boys (and ex-boys): Iker, Isco, Sergio & Albiol. They report on November 12. (Congrats also to Álvaro Medrán on his first call up for the U21 team).
