"Football is won with the ball at your feet," says Dani Olmo, who Luis de la Fuente expects to be one of Spain's key players at the European Championship. The national team coach has always had his eye on Olmo, even after he left Barcelona for Dinamo Zagreb at the age of 17: the Spain coach, then in charge of the Under-19s, never failed to call him up. His versatility is key: De la Fuente can use him as a winger on either flank, as a central playmaker, as a midfielder or as a false nine. His father, Miquel, who is a coach, is responsible for preparing him to be able to play in all these positions. Olmo comes into the competition without a trace of the injuries that hampered him in the first part of the season, which he finished in fine form. Both Barcelona and Liverpool are said to be keeping a close eye on him at the Euros as they polish their summer plans.
