He is a player who overflows. With an enormous ability to overcome opponents. With Adama it will not be a one against one but one against two or against three “. With these words he defined Luis Enrique the debut of Adama traore (24 years) with The Red last wednesday before Portugal. The footballer of Wolverhampton was finally able to put on the shirt of the Selection Spanish, even if it was starting from the bench. And after jumping onto the pitch in minute 62 for Sergio Canales It was the great danger for Spain in the final leg of the crash at the Jdared Alvalade. The great shaker. He even had the option to score in the last minutes and gave almost half a goal to Dani Olmo in a shot that ended up disrupting Rui Patricio.
The truth is that Adama played 28 minutes and revolutionized the attack of Luis Enrique. During the short time he was on the green he did not stop trying. Their numbers speak for themselves: six dribbles performed; two recoveries and a created chance, which almost ended in a goal. His power and speed caused many problems in the tired defense of Fernando Santos’ pupils.
Luis Enrique finds in Adama the differential footballer to dismantle tight defenses. Its depth and verticality give an extra weapon to the Spanish game of control and touch of the ball. He is a player who does not wrinkle and is able to attract the attention of rival defenses, which opens up spaces for the rest of his teammates. Luis Enrique values him for his “enormous ability to dribble” and overcome opponents. A good boost. It is a cannon, very difficult to stop in the race (ask Trincão) and with an enormous capacity to dribble with power and play space. His snatch is diamond in the rough. He must improve in front of goal (he scores little) and in turnovers (seven, against Portugal).
His good minutes with La Roja generated a cascade of praise. Adama was thunder. With matches like this, in the future we will see a lot of Adama with Spain. Luis Enrique and the National Team need Adama “in its purest form”. A force of nature with a privileged physique who will wait again from the bench for his opportunity tonight.
