Jenni Hermoso enters Montse Tomé’s second list at the head of the Women’s National Team


Montse Tomé announced this Wednesday her second call-up as national coach. The main news, expected, is the return of Jenni Hermoso to the national team two months after the World Cup final and the ‘Rubiales case’ broke out with a global reach.

Jenni Hermoso is called up with the National Team after being controversially absent from the previous list by decision of Tomé. A call from the coach two weeks ago brought closer positions and the call sealed a kind of peace with the player. Rafael Hermoso , brother of the Madrid woman, called the Asturian coach a “puppet” of Vilda and Rubiales before the National Court on September 25.

The call-up of Jenni Hermoso is not the only novelty in a list that is continuous with respect to the previous one, but that also recovers several of the World Cup players who missed the previous training camp due to injury. These are  Ivana Andrés , Esther González and Salma Paralluelo . Mapi León and Patri Guijarro are still missing , and they maintain their voluntary resignation.

Of the soccer players who were not in the World Cup, Maite Oroz repeats. The Navarrese Real Madrid player was already present on Montse Tomé’s first list in September where she scored a goal. Now she has the opportunity again in the world champion team.


Likewise, four footballers will still not be able to wear the world champion star:  Laia Codina  (Arsenal),  Alba Redondo  (Levante),  Rocío Gálvez  (Real Madrid) and  Irene Guerrero  (Manchester United).

Continue with the streak

In this way, the Spanish team is preparing to face two new commitments corresponding to the Women’s Nations League against Italy and Switzerland . Two matches that will be played far from Spanish territory and in which the National Team will seek to continue its good dynamics.

The first duel will be next Friday, October 27, against the Italian team. Four days later the duel against Switzerland will arrive, a team that Spain already faced in the last international break and whom they beat 5-0.

Montse Tomé’s team will seek to continue a winning streak that now extends to six consecutive wins. Since the defeat against Japan on the third day of the group stage of the World Cup, Spain has won all its matches.
