First time ever that no Real Madrid player is in the Spanish squad for a major tournament.

surely Ramos could still do a job for them. Strange one.

Ruthless from Spain to bring in an uncapped Frenchman in a living legends place and they didn't even name 26. Looks a personal one.

Rushed back from injury was he not? I’d definitely be taking him, even for a goal threat from set pieces if you’re chasing a goal and he’s a sure bet for a penalty. Especially if they didn’t take 26.

There isn't much excitement looking at that Spain squad compared to say 10 years ago.

Enrique still very bitter from his time at Real.

Enrique has to win the Euros to keep his job after this call I suppose.

Ramos would have been a man that would do what had to be done in the last ten mins no questions asked too. They'll miss him no doubt.

Azpilicueta is the only right back too in the squad.

He has left out Carvajal who was the obvious option here and he's another Real man.

Azpi would play more at cb now as well would he? Strange leaving Carvajal out!

He played for Real and felt he was never truly appreciated then joined Barca direct from them after his contract ran out. Became Barca captain later on and clearly carries a chip on his shoulder.

He left Real for Barca at his peak, a few years later was a bit over enthusiastic when he scored in a Barca win over Real (Think Adebayor without the running the pitch to do it), the real problem was it was in front of the Madrid Ultras in a celebration he used at Real Madrid prior to the move. He repeated the same kind of thing a few times when he scored v Real.

Got himself involved in a few flashpoints over the years too in same games.

The Spanish in general don't really like Enrique but that is due to the scenario when he left the job, then come back and the sour taste of that all.

Southgate waiting to make the big decisions and named a 33 man squad before dropping to 26 next week after the EL and CL finals.

With 33 has included a few that reckoned won’t make it like TAA.

Think he the only manager to do this yet.

Portugal squad looks very strong on paper.
