AC Milan midfielder Brahim Diaz has revealed that he will be delighted to play for Spain at the forthcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that Diaz has been capped once by Spain and he has scored one goal for the national team.
He has scored two goals and registered one assist in seven Serie A games this season.
In an interview with besoccer.com, Diaz noted that it will be a dream come true to play at the World Cup.
“I have no plans in November, I am very much looking forward to it,” besoccer.com quoted Diaz as saying.
“Going with the national team is a pride and it is one of the objectives. It would be amazing to go to Qatar.”
Diaz’s debut for Spain was in a 4-0 friendly win over Lithuania on June 8 2021 at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque, Spain.
Brahim, born in Spain to Spanish parents from Melilla, was eligible to play for Morocco due to the origin of his father. Brahim is a youth international for Spain, and made his first appearances at age 16, where he received praise for his performances for Spain’s U17s in the 2016 UEFA European Under-17 Championship.
Due to the isolation of some national team players following the positive COVID-19 test of Sergio Busquets, Spain’s under-21 squad were called up for the international friendly against Lithuania on 8 June 2021. Brahim made his senior debut in the match and scored the second goal in a 4–0 victory against Lithuania
On 15 October 2021, it was announced that Diaz had contracted COVID-19 amidst its pandemic in Italy. By October 26 he had recovered.
