The most thrilling journey
The dream takes shape, at only 22 years old. The first World Cup appointment comes as a reward for commitment, effort and performance. With a decisive role in the cycle of Luis Enrique, Ferran is presented in Qatar 2022 as one of the most important players in the gear of the national team. Top scorer in the qualifying phase, with four goals, the priority in the final phase is clear: to compete without limits.
The European Championship was a wonderful experience; Spain reached the semifinals and Ferran shone with great moments against Slovakia and Croatia. Italy won in a high voltage duel, but the team showed personality and a clear identity. That potential has been evident in the UEFA Nations League, where the attacker from Foios has left his mark. The double against the Italians at the San Siro, for example, will go down in history. Ferran was top scorer of the 20/21 edition of the Nations League responding to every challenge. It is no coincidence that he has 13 goals in 31 international matches. Now, the challenge is greater. In the first phase he has to face Costa Rica, Germany and Japan. Sounds like a good start.
Luis Enrique has assembled a young team, but capable of everything. Ferran represents one of the most fertile generations of Spanish soccer. The FC Barcelona striker knows what it means to progress and win at international level. Qatar 2022 is another level, but together with other teammates like Eric García or Hugo Guillamón, he was able to successfully dominate at the U-17 and U-19 European Championships (with a decisive role in the title match against Portugal) and reached the final of the U-17 World Cup in India in 2017… but the pulse was won by Phil Foden’s England.
