Adama Traore has been given his first full Spanish call-up for the upcoming Euro qualifiers.

Good to see him getting recognition from his country!

Strange when he just pledged his allegiance to the Mali national team

I think their ambition is to field a full team of Traores just to confuse the officials......like that cricket team in Dewsbury....Patel, Patel, Patel, Patel, etc.......of course, it doesn't let Mali fans sing "There's only one Adama Traore"....

I think Mali have enough Adama Traores in their team already.

I wonder if all the Traores were on the pitch at the same time how they'd do the shirts. 

Traore
Adama
A. Traore?

So are the Spanish just trying to make sure he doesn't play for Mali then with this call up?

I don't like it when national teams do that.  If they intend to keep selecting him and he can have a good international career with them then great but otherwise just let the lad play for Mali and have a good international career there.

They're not just capping him for the sake of it though, he's decent and might be good enough to play for Spain in a few years.

He's Spanish, not Malian, but it's the unfortunate situation that teams now have to rush selections because players will choose to play for their dad/nan's country if they don't get picked for their actual country quick enough.

At least with players like Zaha and Assombalonga going to play for C'√īte d'Ivoire and DR Congo¬†were actually born in those countries, even if they were raised here and only joined up after failing to break in to the England team.

Saying that though, I'm sure Traore probably feels a strong connection to his heritage, being black and Muslim in a majority white and Catholic country.

He may well do, it was just the timing of it that made me wonder.

Liverpool somehow 2-0 up against Man City, VAR nowhere to be seen. They've not played particularly well for like a month.

It really is there year this time.

    • I guess the main difference is that Red a Bull took over a tiny non league club in Leipzig, rather than an established championship club. I would imagine there was a lot less resistance to change there, than there would be here as Boro already have an estimated identity.¬† ¬† A closer parallel would be if Red Bull came in and took over Blyth Spartans, changed their name to Racing Blyth Spartans and took them up from the Northern National League to the Prem, I‚Äôm sure there would be one or objections from die hard fans, but the club would attract many new fans as they rose through the divisions. I guess that scenario would take a lot longer, but be a lot more organic.¬†
    • I understand where your coming from but after watching RBL V Spurs last night I know what I would prefer to see on a weekly basis. That is how to play a high press game. I thought they were very exciting to watch and I thought Spurs were fortunate to only concede 1 goal. I am 100% convinced that if Boro could produce like that then the ground would be full every week regardless of if there was a change of identity or not. And that in itself would add to a much better game day atmosphere.
    • Sounds ideal for him.¬†
    • well seems Braithwaite will be able to get another mega contract and be spending half the time not playing¬†
    • Could be 30-40% of profit due to the hit we took on our original fee.
