Adama Traore called up to the Spanish national team.

Adama Traore called up to the Spanish national team.


Wolves forward, Adama Traore has received his maiden call up to the Spanish national team ahead of the  Nations League matches against Germany and Ukraine in September.

November last year, Traore was believed to have agreed to play for his Parent country, Mali after some pictures of him holding a Malian jersey surfaced on the internet. Coincidentally, few days later he was called up to the Spanish national team but injury halted his debut.

Barcelona teenage sensation Ansu Fati were among the players who received a first time call up to the team.

There are places too for Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Unai Simon, Real Sociedad midfielder Mikel Merino and Sevilla full-back Sergio Reguilon, another Madrid loanee and Real Madrid midfielder Oscar Rodriguez - who has been on loan at Leganes - is another player included.

September's games will be Spain's first since last year, with international matches in March having been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Enrique's side head to Stuttgart to face Germany on September 3 before hosting Ukraine three days later.
