Spain coach Enrique counting on Man City defender Laporte to make World Cup

Spain coach Luis Enrique is counting on Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte to make the World Cup.

Speaking after Spain defeated Portugal to win their Nations League group, Enrique discussed the players not present in his latest squad, including Laporte.

“I need to see Ansu Fati playing at Barca," he said.

"Laporte is already recovered and is training with his team and [Mikel] Oyarzabal I prefer not to say anything. Let's see how he recovers.

"But it is true that it will be a difficult squad and not everyone that I would like will be in it."
