Isco, the reborn

first_imgIsco has been reborn in this 2020, after a 2018-19 course to forget in which his personal confrontation with Solari led him to practically disappear from the starting eleven of Real Madrid. The return of Zidane predicted good things for Malaga, as the French coach has always shown his predilection for the game of the midfielder, but the beginnings were hard and generated doubts that in the last weeks have dissipated: Isco has been holder in four of the last five days of LaLiga, playing 271 league minutes in 2020, 60.2% of the possible. A dynamic that is dragged from the end of 2019: Isco started in Mestalla against Valencia (1-1) and at Camp Nou against Barcelona (0-0). In the first match of 2020, in Getafe, he returned to be part of the eleven (0-3), a situation that continued in the Spanish Super Cup played in Saudi Arabia: holder in the semifinals against Valencia (1-3) and in the final against Atlético (0-0, 4-1 in the penalty shootout for Madrid). Zidane has interspersed certain breaks to preserve his physique, as well as to give opportunities to other team media; thus he did not play a minute against Athletic and against Sevilla, both matches at home. But in the league derby against Atleti he was once again one of the eleven elected, although he stayed in the locker room at rest. And it is that Zidane has shown that he trusts Isco as one of his pillars for the great parties, although not as to end the matches: It has been replaced 12 times this season, more than any other player in the white squad. The following, with nine substitutions, are Benzema and Fede Valverde. That confidence of Zidane in the malagueño hatched in El Sadar, where Isco probably made his best game of the season, marking the equalizer for Madrid (he would finish 1-4) and shining in the middle with Modric, another who started the season with doubts about how relevant his role was going to be. It is now up to Isco to make its figures more forceful: He has only scored two goals so far in 1,068 minutes; the Andalusian continues to climb positions and It is already the 13th in the list of minutes played in Madrid this course.The European Championship, the main objectiveIn Isco’s mind it is recorded to return to the Spanish National Team, with which he has not been since June 2019. His physical problems at the beginning of the season and the difficulties to enter the rhythm of the white team left him out of Gerard’s calls. Moreno in September, October and November. But fortune has smiled at Isco, as Luis Enrique has returned to the position of coach and the Spaniard has always shown his taste for the Andalusian: with him he played three of Spain’s four games in the Nations League and the duel he did not play was because he was recovering from appendicitis. The following list of the National Team, at the end of March, will clear up doubts about whether Isco returns with La Roja, With a very clear horizon: the 2020 Eurocup.last_img read more
