    The Spaniard found a very creative way to reveal who made the cut for the upcoming Nations League matches against Switzerland and Cristiano Ronaldo‘s Portugal.

    The 52-year-old tactician went on a cycling trip and named the players while he pushed for the burn.

    De Gea was once more omitted in favour of Unai Simon, Robert Sanchez and David Raya.

    Other notable omissions include Paris Saint-Germain ace Sergio Ramos, Barcelona starlet Ansu Fati and Liverpool star Thiago Alcantara.

    Star defender Ramos has fallen out of favour recently at the Furia Roja following a string of injuries.

    Enrique opted for the likes of Pau Torres, Jordi Alba, Jose Gaya, Hugo Guillamon, Diego Llorente, Eric Garcia, ex-Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Dani Carvajal.

    Midfielder Thiago recently returned from a hamstring injury and impressed against Ajax in the Champions League.

    But Enrique preferred the likes of Sergio Busquets, Manchester City star Rodri, Pedri, Koke, Gavi, Carlos Soler and Marcos Llorente.

    Fati hasn’t been able to find a spot in Xavi’s line-up with Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele and Raphinha ahead of him.

    Instead, Enrique called up Pablo Sarabia, Nico Williams, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Morata, Borja Iglesias, Yemery Pino and Torres.

    But the ex-Barcelona boss has yet to make up his mind for the winter’s World Cup in Qatar.

    Spain has been drawn in Group E with Costa Rica, Germany and Japan.
