Alexia, called up for the Nations League final!

The surprise has come just a few hours before the Spanish women’s team plays the final of the Nations League against France (7:00 p.m.). The Spanish coach, Montse Tomé has announced the list of the 23 called up to fight for the title and it includes Barça midfielder Alexia Putellas, who was summoned without having been medically discharged from the arthroscopy on the left knee that she underwent at the end of December. The two discarded have been Maria Pérez and Sheila García.

Alexia was ruled out for the semifinal against the Netherlands last Friday in which the Spanish team won by a resounding 3-0 that gave them a place in the final and a passport to compete, for the first time in their history, in the Olympic Games. . Everything indicated that Alexia would once again be one of those discarded, taking into account that she has not yet completed her recovery process. But Montse Tomé already left the door open to calling her in the press conference prior to the final and has ended up deciding that she be among those chosen.

Alexia’s call for this final four caught Barça by surprise, who had no knowledge of the Spanish coach’s intentions. This summons did not sit too well within the Blaugrana club, taking into account that the footballer was not medically cleared and had not yet reappeared in the team led by Jonatan Giráldez.

It remains to be seen if the call for this final is simply in her capacity as captain, so that she can help her teammates emotionally or Montse Tomé intends to count on the midfielder’s help during the match.

This is the list of those called up and the list of numbers for the final of the Nations League against France that will be played at the La Cartuja Stadium this Wednesday (7:00 p.m.)a tournament that decides its first edition in the women’s category:
