David Raya called up by Spain for Nations League games

Goalkeeper part of Luis Enrique's squad for four games next month

23 May 2022

David Raya has been named in the latest Spain squad for June's four Nations League A matches. 

Our stopper is one of three goalkeepers selected, alongside Brighton and Hove Albion's Robert Sanchez and Unai Simon of Athletic Bilbao.

Spain face four League A Group 2 fixtures in ten days next month with the bulk of the 2022/23 Nations League calendar played during this summer international window. 

Luis Enrique's side begin at home to Portugal in Seville on 2 June before heading to Prague for a game against Czech Republic three days later. They then move on to Geneva to play Switzerland on 9 June before returning to home soil in Malaga to face Czech Republic on 12 June. All kick-offs are 7.45pm UK time. 

David did not earn youth international recognition for Spain but did make his senior bow in March, playing the full 90 minutes of a 2-1 win over Albania. 

At club level this season, David kept eight clean sheets in 24 Premier League outings. The 26-year-old conceded just 27 league goals, form which earned him that maiden international call-up earlier this year. 

In total, David has now kept 42 clean sheets in 122 games since joining The Bees from Blackburn Rovers back in the summer of 2019.
