Tottenham star Pedro Porro loses Euro spot to veterans

Tottenham Hotspur star Pedro Porro would be hoping to be a part of the upcoming European Championship while jetting off to Australia to feature in a pointless post-season friendly. However, the game in Melbourne will be his final appearance for a while, as Spain manager Luis De La Fuente will jet to Germany without the former Sporting Lisbon star.

The 62-year-old has chosen Dani Carvajal and Jesus Navas for the right-back position over Pedro Porro. While Carvajal has been the first choice for his country for some time, the 24-year-old will be disgruntled that a 38-year-old will travel with the Spanish squad ahead of him.

Navas has been an integral part of Sevilla for a while; however, he is entering the twilight of his career, and the majority of the supporters expected the former Alaves manager to opt for a younger option who can be around the Spanish setup for an extended period. Pedro Porro’s impressive performances in the Premier League made him a strong candidate to get the nod. 

The former City Group full-back has been impressing in the English top-tier, especially offensively, despite his inverted role under Ange Postecoglou. Many expected him to have a busy summer in pursuit of the EURO 2024 championships, although he will now have a summer off.

Porro will now have the summer to himself to recharge his batteries and be ready to push with the North Londoners next season. This could be a blessing in disguise for Spurs, as a fresh Porro could be an asset in the upcoming campaign.
