Rayo Vallecano: Newcastle, the first touchstone of the Rayo World Cup season
And theThe World Cup in Qatar is looming and top-flight clubs are beginning to plan for what will be more than an unusual winter. Rayo Vallecano will finish the competition next Sunday in 13th place against Mollerosa in the King’s Cup. Once the confrontation is over, the red-haired players will have 10 days off before returning to training to begin preparing for their return.
Before the resumption of the Cup and the League, Rayo plans to play four friendlies to maintain the physical and competitive tone. With a tour of Turkey as their star dish, Iraola’s men will also return to England, where they were preparing last summer for the start of the league. They will do so against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on December 17th at 1:30pm. In this way, Rayo will compete on British soil only 24 hours before the World Cup final.
The English are one of the greatest achievements revealed by a prime minister, as they occupy fourth place and have demonstrated their candidacy to be able to fight for European positions. Old La Liga acquaintances such as Javier Manquillo, Alexander Isak or Kieran Trippier are members of their ranks, although their presence or absence in the friendly will be conditioned on the call-up of Gareth Southgate.
Ral de Toms, Raista’s biggest attraction during the World Cup
With Bath Cess as a lead candidate to be in Qatar, Andoni Iraola will be able to use the bulk of his squad to continue preparing for the exciting reboot. The main novelty will be Ral de Toms. The striker from Madrid will have to wait until January to be able to play the official matches of the tournament, but he will be able to do so in this series of friendlies during the World Cup. This is all conditioned on Luis Enrique not finally including him in the list of 26 for the World Cup, which seems unlikely given that he was unable to play at the start of the season.
This transition period will also improve Andoni Iraola’s screen. The Usurbil report has publicly made it clear that the ideal model for the January market is the ability to reduce workforce. So far, she has three goalkeepers and 23 away players, in addition to Diego Mendes and Pablo Moz, regular local players in the calls. Defense and attacking are the two centers in which there is a greater surplus of footballers and where all eyes are focused.
