In an interview with L’Équipe, Carlos Soler admitted to being afraid for his place in the World Cup because of his low playing time at PSG.
Arrived at Paris Saint Germain in the last hours of the 2022 summer transfer window, Carlos Soler took a risk. By mortgaging his playing time, the former Valencia player also put his place in the Spain team at stake, he who had been regularly called up by Luis Enrique since September 2021. And there was cause for concern, because with 71 minutes of play in mid-October, the 25-year-old could have lost his place with La Roja. But Christophe Galtier gradually gave him more playing time (4 starts in the last 5 matches), allowing his player to get a ticket to Qatar.
