Jese Rodriguez, the new star of Real Madrid, will not forget too soon the day of February 5, 2014, the when the Santiago Bernabeu stadium chanted his name after the goal scored against Atletico Madrid. For 15 years the arena in Madrid not chanted the name of a footballer grew by the club.
More exactly Iker Casillas was the last one. In the stands at the match Real Madrid – Atletico, final score 3-0, in the Copa del Rey semi-finals, was present and Spain’s coach Vicente del Bosque, who said after the game: “Jese is one of the footballers who can come to the national team. All those who make good games are eligible for a place in La Roja. ”
Jese scored six goals this season for Real and provided five assists in the 847 minutes he played, having the best performance of all the Carlo Ancelotti’s team. In the Copa del Rey, the 20-year-old player scored three times from only four shots sent on goal. The other three goals were scored in La Liga. And now, the new idol of the Santiago Bernabeu stands could be called for the friendly match Spain – Italy, on March 5, at the Vicente Calderon in Madrid.
Del Bosque is the right coach for the young players who debut at the national team. 38 players have started in La Roja under his command, and 13 of them were under 22 years: Bartra, Inigo Martinez Tello, Pedro, Pique (to 22 years), Alberto Moreno, Koke, Javi Martinez, Busquets (at 21), Capel and Thiago (20) and Bojan Krkic (18). Jese Rodriguez will turn 21 on February 26.
A very good chance for the young Los Blancos star is the three stages suspension of Cristiano Ronaldo. In the following games, with Villarreal, Getafe and Elche, Jese will take his place the starting XI and will play exactly the CR7’s position. Until now, taking advantage of the absence of Gareth Bale, Jese has played on the right wing.
