Spanish head coach Luis Enrique has confirmed the names of the 24 players that will participate at the forthcoming European Championship.

There was much speculation ahead of the announcement over Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos being included or not. In the end the Asturian opted to omit the player who has 180 international caps with La Roja and who has suffered recently with a hamstring problem and who has missed the bulk of 2021 through injury.
