Enrique confirmed his 26-man squad for the tournament in Qatar today with Spain kicking off their Group E campaign against Costa Rica on November 23.
Enrique’s tactical reshuffle saw Busquets return to his best form in Euro 2020 and the former La Blaugrana coach is not ruling out an appearance for him at the 2026 World Cup.
“My goal is to convince Busi to play another World Cup” as per reports from Marca.
“If we manage the game how we want to play, in the rival’s half, and have more of the ball, then Busquets is number one.
“If we start playing long and change our style, obviously Busi is not the best pivot.
“But I don’t see anyone in the world better than Busi to play how we want to play.”
Busquets will be approaching 38 ahead of the 2026 tournament in Mexico, Canada and the United States, and if he is still playing, he will likely set a new La Roja appearance record.
