Luis De la Fuente’s list for Spain to participate in the Olympic Games is in doubt. The coach has wanted to take the best possible team, always within the canons that only U23 players can attend and has summoned some footballers such as Pedri or Dani Olmo who have been habitual in their teams and are playing under the orders of Luis Enrique. A certain sector pales and argues that, due to fatigue and possible injuries, these players should not be in Japan. SThey forget that we are talking about the Olympic Games themselves.
Soccer is the king of sports, the most followed sport throughout the planet, the one that many boys and girls want to practice and the one that carries millions and millions of passions, as well as income and sales. However, their competitions are not the queens. The most important event in sport has always been, is and will be the Olympic Games, since ancient Greece athletes from all regions traveled to Olympia to compete.

Thus, no one should underestimate the Olympic Games. To perform in this competition is an obligation, as well as to go with everything, within what the estates allow. Not only a title is at stake, the gold medal is at stake, the honor and respect of the whole planet for having been the best in soccer discipline.
No team, player or fans should deny the Olympic Games. Seeing a footballer defend your shield compete in Tokyo should not be anything other than a source of pride, a plus for the category and history of both the player and the club.
