大干一场

也曾踏过征途,还未建功立业

2016年是匈牙利阔别三十年第一次回到洲际大赛赛场,在当届比赛中以小组第一成功从实力平均的F组突围。彼时国家队的主力门将还是40岁的老将基拉利,这名爱穿长裤的守门员从97年起就在德甲柏林赫塔担任首发。欧洲杯结束后,基拉利光荣引退,26岁的古拉西接任一门。从2015年起便在莱比锡红牛效力的古拉西如今是德甲最优秀的门将之一。匈牙利在本届预选赛中仅小组名列第四,但在附加赛中连克保加利亚和冰岛,成功晋级正赛。

在普约尔退出国家队拉莫斯移至中卫以后,西班牙右后卫位置经历了数次更迭。阿韦洛亚出任2012年欧洲杯主力。2014年巴西世界杯,24岁的阿兹皮利奎塔在前两场小组赛中出任首发。自那以后,虽然每届大赛都入选名单,但切尔西现任队长只在2016年欧洲杯小组赛对土耳其的比赛中短暂替补登场,其间主力位置由马竞老将胡安弗兰,皇马双星卡瓦哈尔和纳乔占据。虽然在本届预选赛中从未登场,但凭借在切尔西的稳定表现,AZP将在卡瓦哈尔持续伤缺之后以31岁的高龄重新回归国家队主力右后卫。

本赛季英超最佳球员鲁本·迪亚斯在2018年俄罗斯世界杯时还是一名新人,年仅21岁便获得征召的他和前锋格德斯是葡萄牙阵中最小的两名球员。虽然未获得一分钟出场时间,迪亚斯在世界杯后迅速成长为国家队主力中卫,作为双双年近四十的老将佩佩和丰特的常备搭档。本届预选赛迪亚斯出战了八场比赛的每一分钟,队中除了门将帕特里西奥以外仅此一人。在2019年欧国联决赛葡萄牙1比0战胜荷兰的比赛中,迪亚斯荣膺全场最佳球员。

2018年世界杯后,法国队主力中卫乌姆蒂蒂因为伤病状态急剧下滑,国家队和俱乐部都让位于小他两岁的朗格莱。与朗格莱同岁的巴黎圣日尔曼后卫金彭贝在俄罗斯世界杯时就已入选国家队,并在小组赛末轮与丹麦的比赛中出场。虽然在本届预选赛中并非主力,但凭借本赛季的出色发挥和巴黎圣日耳曼在欧战赛场越来越出色的战绩,金彭贝在决赛阶段有望获得一个主力位置,与瓦拉内搭档领衔后防。和三年前世界杯夺冠的主力阵容相比,25岁的金彭贝会是唯一一个新面孔。

“核弹头”舍甫琴科在2016年后执掌乌克兰国家队,之前夏天的欧洲杯,乌克兰三战皆墨,一球未进,耻辱出局。该届比赛中年仅19岁的小将津琴科在前两场比赛中替补登场,提前出局后的第三轮比赛则首发出战。这名在国家队司职前腰的天才少年彼时还效力于俄超名不见经传的乌法俱乐部。欧洲杯结束后,津琴科被曼城新帅瓜迪奥拉招致麾下,过去两年成长为主力轮换,在不久前结束的欧冠决赛中作为左后卫首发打满全场。本届预选赛乌克兰六胜二平保持不败,力压葡萄牙以小组头名出线。

以阿扎尔,德布劳内,卢卡库和库尔图瓦为首的比利时“黄金一代”在2018年俄罗斯世界杯收获季军,这一批主力队员磨合了三届大赛,终于登上领奖台。该届比赛,21岁的蒂勒曼斯被征召入队作为新鲜血液补充。他在小组赛末轮和三四名争夺战两场对英格兰的比赛中首发出场,此外还替补登场两次。世界杯结束后,蒂莱曼斯进一步跻身主力阵容,在本届预选赛中登场九次,比利时也完成十连胜轻松出线。蒂莱曼斯攻守兼备,本赛季足总杯决赛,他打入一脚漂亮的远射,力助莱斯特城战胜切尔西夺冠。

2016年欧洲杯瑞士阵中有三名19岁小将,其中前锋恩博洛名气最大,四场比赛均有出场。后卫埃尔维迪和中场扎卡里亚则未能上场。这三名当时的新秀如今都效力于德甲门兴格拉德巴赫队,和门将索默一同担纲是绝对主力。2018年世界杯,扎卡里亚迎来国家队大赛首秀,在小组赛两场比赛中替补贝赫拉米登场。后者于2018年后从国家队退役,扎卡里亚自此升任球队主力后腰,和队长扎卡搭档。本届预选赛中八场全勤,并列全队最多。决赛阶段扎卡里亚将身披象征主力的6号战袍出战。

今年已过而立之年的京多安在国家队经历不算顺利,他早在2012年欧洲杯就入选名单,但未有机会登场。因为伤病,京多安错过了接下来两届大赛。2018年世界杯小组赛第二轮对阵瑞典替补受伤的鲁迪上场,竟是这位早已成名的球星在洲际大赛的首秀。本赛季,被解放到前腰位置的京多安迎来大爆发,是曼城在英超联赛中早早确立领先并最终夺冠的功臣。欧洲杯决赛阶段,基米希撤回至右后卫,格雷茨卡大伤出愈,京多安将赛事初期挑起德国队中场的大梁。

孔蒂出色的执教能力在国家队再次得到印证。尽管早早宣布夏天将远赴英伦执教切尔西,意大利依然在决赛阶段表现得可圈可点。小组赛提前出线,八分之一决赛完胜西班牙,最终点球憾负德国。该届杯赛阵中年纪最小的贝尔纳代斯基,在小组赛第三轮对爱尔兰的比赛中完成欧洲杯首秀。一年后这名左脚将从佛罗伦萨加盟尤文图斯,逐渐成长为常规主力。本届预选赛意大利豪取十连胜,贝尔纳代斯基出场八次,仅次于博努奇和若日尼奥,与队中另一名中场新星巴雷拉一起并列全队第三,并打入两球。

2017年夏天,AC米兰以3800万高价引进安德烈·席尔瓦,这位当时曾被誉为“C罗接班人”的21岁前锋在意甲赛场表现惨淡。树挪死,人挪活,经与雷比奇互换东家登陆德甲后,席尔瓦便一发不可收拾,本赛季更是在联赛中打入28球。2018年世界杯,席尔瓦担任格德斯的替补,除了小组赛第三轮对伊朗的比赛首发登场外均替补上阵。本届预选赛席尔瓦的出场顺位仍在格德斯之后,只总共登场三次,加上若塔和菲利克斯的崛起,席尔瓦将迎来证明自己关键的一届杯赛。

上届欧洲杯年纪最小的球员拉什福德已经不再是国家队的新人,甚至在最近与罗马尼亚的热身赛中佩戴上队长袖标。2016年欧洲杯和2018年世界杯,他参加了英格兰队全部十一场比赛中的八场,但除了在世界杯小组赛末轮对比利时的比赛中首发以外,其余全部替补,通常对位替换斯特林。自2015年被范加尔提拔至一线队以来,拉什福德成长迅速,进球率每年稳中有升,尤其在本赛季展示出明显好于斯特林的状态。本届比赛有望第一次以主力前锋的身份出战洲际大赛。
