Soccer News: Bryan Gil replaces the injured Marcos Llorente in the Spanish squad


Bryan Gil has replaced Marcos Llorente in the squad of Spain for the semi-final of the Nations League against Italy.

Atletico Madrid announced on Sunday that midfielder Llorente injured his right thigh in a 2-0 La Liga win against Barcelona on Saturday.

It is unclear how long he will be sidelined, but Llorente will play no role as Spain aim to get a small measure of rematch on the European champions Italy, who defeated them on penalties in the Euro 2020 semi-finals.

Instead, Tottenham winger Bryan could potentially have the chance to perform at the San Siro on Wednesday.

Bryan has already won six appearances for Spain during his international career and joins Luis Enrique’s team despite a low-key start to his Spurs career.

Since joining Tottenham from Sevilla in July, Bryan has made just eight appearances in all competitions.

Three of them made it to the Premier League and four to the Europa Conference League with each other in the EFL Cup.

Bryan has yet to find the net for the Spurs and has two chances created in his name.
