There are several youth squads Atletico Madrid who have had minutes this preseason with the first team, three of them making their debut: Sergio Diez, Antonio Gomis and Marco Moreno. Special mention for the first, who counted assiduously for Diego Simeon and that in Cádiz he even gave a good goal assist to Griezmann. The right back featured in three of the four pre-season friendlies. He only ran out of minutes on Sunday against Juventus.
A match in which he debuted with the first team Mark Moreno. The center-back had already been summoned for last week’s clash in Oslo against Manchester United, but then he did not have the opportunity to jump onto the pitch. In Turin, yes.
It was the 84th minute of the match when Simeone decided to seat Koke and let the defender in his place, who acted with the ’30’ on his back as a central defender on the right. “Very happy for the debut. It’s time to continue working”wrote the canary on his social networks.
The most surreal debut
The other youth squad that has debuted with the first team this summer has been Antonio Gomis. The goalkeeper who last year alternated the Youth with the subsidiary debuted in El Burgo de Osma against Numancia, although not under sticks. Because after Hermoso’s injury, Atlético was left with ten players and he was the only one available on the bench, so Simeone decided to place him as a striker!
