Manchester United shot stopper David De Gea has been missing for Spain during their campaign in the UEFA Nations League for the 2022/23 season. David De Gea was left out of the 25-man Spain squad named by manager Luis Enrique towards the end of last month.

In the absence of De Gea, Brentfordshot stopper David Raya joined Brighton and Hove Albion shot stopper and first choice Unai Simon of Spanish La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao as the three goalkeepers in the latest Spain squad for the Nations League games against Portugal, Czech Republic (twice) and Switzerland in Group A2.
David De Gea was a major absentee as established earlier as Spain finished their campaign in Group A2 of the Nations League this month with two wins and two draws. The 2010 World Cup winners are at the top of the group with eight points from four games. They have one more point than Portugal in second place. Czech Republic and Switzerland are in third and fourth respectively with four points and three points.
Ahead of the fourth round of games in Group A2 on Sunday, Portugal were at the top of the standings with seven points from three matches, while Spain were second with five points. Czech Republic occupied third spot with four points, while Switzerland had zero point from their first three games in the group. Switzerland stunned Portugal 1-0 at home thanks to the goal from HarisSeferovic thereby paving the way for Spain to replace the Euro 2016 winners at the top of the group with a 2-0 home win over Czech Republic. Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler and substitute Pablo Sarabia of Sporting Lisbon scored the goals for Spain either side of the break.
The Nations League campaign in Group A2 will resume in September with Spain playing hosts to Switzerland, while Portugal will take on hosts Czech Republic.
