David de Gea to Miss the 2022 World Cup After Being Snubbed From Spain’s Provisional Squad by Luis Enrique
The veteran goalkeeper for Manchester United will not compete in the upcoming World Cup after Luis Enrique, the manager of Spain, left the 31-year-old out of his preliminary 55-man squad.
De Gea's place with the Spanish national team has been in jeopardy for some time after being passed over for Robert Sanchez of Brighton and Unai Simon of Athletic Bilbao.
De Gea's window of opportunity to play for Luis Enrique was gradually closing given that Enrique uses an expansive style that necessitates having elite ball-playing and sweeping skills in his goalkeepers.
In terms of priority, Unai Simon and Robert Sanchez are ahead, and the most recent squad shows De Gea to be even further behind. David Raya of Brentford is additionally anticipated to travel to Qatar.
Enrique ignores De Gea
A few weeks before the World Cup, De Gea was left off of Spain's 55-man provisional squad, according to the Daily Mail.
The United shot-stopper is left off despite the squad's size; three other Premier League goalkeepers were chosen in his place.
The former Barcelona boss has picked five goalkeepers in the 55-man list, but United's number one is not one of them. De Gea was in Spain's squad last November when he was an unused substitute, according to Goal.
Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga and Getafe's David Soria will be backups in case of any injuries or illnesses before the tournament.
