Spain and Mali both want Wolves forward Adama Traore
Published in Ahram Online on 02 - 10 - 2020

Spain and Mali both want Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore to play for their national teams.
Spain coach Luis Enrique included Traore in his squad Friday for three upcoming matches, three days after Mali did the same.
Traore has said he wants to play for Spain and has been included on previous squad lists, but injuries and his recent infection with the coronavirus have kept him from playing _ leaving him still free to play for Mali.
Because Traore has played for Spain at the youth and under-21 level, he would need FIFA permission to switch eligibility to Mali. It was unclear Friday if that request has been made or if FIFA has approved it. FIFA could not immediately clarify Traore's international status on Friday.
Luis Enrique said he hopes Traore can make his debut for Spain, adding it was up to the player to decide which country he will play for.
``From what I know from talking to the player, he wants to play for Spain,'' Luis Enrique said. ``Any player who wants to play for another national team, that is not a problem. We have to respect the player's opinion.''
Traore was born in Spain to parents from the African country.
Mali included him on the team announced on Tuesday for friendlies against Ghana on Oct. 9 and Iran on Oct. 13 to be played in Turkey.
Traore said in an interview with Spanish sports daily Marca in 2018 that he would prefer to play for Spain.
Teenager Ansu Fati will likely again play for Spain in the upcoming Nations League matches against Switzerland and Ukraine and the friendly against Portugal.
The 17-year-old Fati became Spain's youngest scorer last month when he helped Spain beat Ukraine 4-0. Since then, Fati has scored three goals for Barcelona in a sensational start to the season.
Fati had a fantastic first season last year with Barcelona when he broke several scoring records.
Spain plays Portugal in Lisbon on Wednesday. Then, in the Nations League, it will face Switzerland in Madrid on Oct. 10 and visit Ukraine on Oct. 13.
Spain leads Group 4 of the Nations League with four points. Ukraine has three points, Germany two, and Switzerland one.
Spain national team squad:
Goalkeepers: David de Gea (Manchester United), Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea), Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao)
Defenders: Jesus Navas (Sevilla), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Diego Llorente (Leeds), Jose Luis Gaya (Valencia), Sergio Reguilon (Tottenham), Eric Garcia (Manchester City)
Midfielders: Fabian Ruiz (Napoli), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Rodrigo Hernandez (Manchester City), Mikel Merino (Real Sociedad), Dani Ceballos (Arsenal), Sergio Canales (Real Betis), Jose Campana (Levante)
Forwards: Rodrigo Moreno (Leeds), Mikel Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad), Adama Traore (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Dani Olmo (Leipzig), Ansu Fati (Barcelona), Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Ferran Torres (Manchester City)
