Brahim Diaz has had a very uncertain international career so far. Born in Malaga with Moroccan heritage, the forward made his maiden appearance for the Spanish national team in 2021.

Brahim even scored on his debut. But since then, he never played for La Roja. There were calls to include him in the setup following his breakthroughs at AC Milan and Real Madrid.

However, at the same time, Morroco approached the Real Madrid starlet to change his allegiance and play for the North African giants.

Brahim was even contemplating playing for Morocco at one point. But the forward ultimately opted to keep on representing the Spanish national team.

The report comes on the back of Brahim’s excellent display against RB Leipzig in midweek when he replaced Jude Bellingham in the starting lineup and scored the winning goal.

AS claims that Spain coach Luis de la Fuente will call up Brahim to the Spain squad for the March friendlies.

Eyeing for Euro 2024

Those games will serve as an excellent opportunity for Brahim Diaz to prove his mettle at the highest level.

Brahim’s ultimate goal will be to secure a place in the Spain squad for the European Championships to be played in Germany in the summer.

The Spaniard has already enjoyed a solid growth at Real Madrid this season, having been involved in 11 goals in all competitions.

Brahim has always stepped up to the plate when needed and it appears he is ready to replicate his performances for the Spanish national team as well.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
