The former cornflower now plays for La Roja and is ready to beat France in the final of the League of Nations.
Born in France, French international in the youth categories (from under 17 to Espoirs), Aymeric Laporte has been defending the colors of Spain, his adopted country, since 2021.
Obviously, the final of the League of Nations between France and Spain on Sunday evening will have a very special flavor for the player trained at Athletic Bilbao and who is playing today at Manchester City.
Before this big meeting, Aymeric Laporte gave his impressions to the official website of the Spanish football selection.

On the France-Spain final
“It will be a very special meeting for me but as I have always said, I am very focused and I am 100% or even 300% with Spain. I’ll give it my all. I will find former teammates (from the France Espoirs team, editor’s note) for this final and we will see each other on the ground.
