Morata, whistles and glory in Seville

Like the bullfighters at the Real Maestranza, Álvaro Morata had it all with the Seville fans in the last European Championship. Whistle that led to an even familiar unpleasant situation before one of the first phase matches. But also applause from those who recognized their effort and were well on their way. Morata played a spectacular European Championship, with two goals to remember against Croatiain memorable left foot volley; and Italy in the semifinal in a crack movement that culminated with the left leg.

Without his future resolved yet (the Madrilenian wants to stay in the Juventusbut he intends Arsenal Y Xavi keeps giving him hope Barca if the azulgrana do not sign Lewandowski), Morata is now with all five senses placed in the National Team, excited to play the first World Cup of his career.

Indisputable for Luis Enrique, who defended him against everything and everyone in the European Championship, today he will meet again with the Seville fans. The striker has shown that he knows how to interpret all the roles. The starter, as a reference player who wears down rival defenses. But also the spare one who is able to take advantage of the efforts of his teammates (of ThomasFor example, in the game of Charterhouse in view of Sweden). We will see which version Luis Enrique chooses for this afternoon and for the matches of this first section of the Nations League.
