Bitter Birthday to Robert

If it is difficult to achieve year by thousands of miles away from yours, contained in a concentration of a team, Roberto Soldado has become more bitter his birthday the day of its 27th anniversary. The gift he wanted did not come. Vicente Del Bosque has been left out of the 23 chosen to compete in Euro 2012.
In the Valencia CF has reached maturity when a killer striker. Has the best season of his life. National top scorer Fernando Llorente League along with 17 goals. Seven goals in European competition over three Cup. A total of 27 goals in 40 games. Percentage similar to Alvaro Negredo with Sevilla. Higher than Fernando Torres at Chelsea.
It matters little. Soldier will not Euro by poor athletic performance. Not for a final downhill of the season with a strange confrontation with coach Unai Emery. Vicente Del Bosque has not by its characteristics in the field.
For finishing first and the air already has Llorente. To live on the edge of offside penalty area and reach the speed has picked the 'child' Torres. The goal of Euro 2008 in Vienna Prater. Their role in a locker room that lacks such heavy weights as Carles Puyol and David Villa. Circumstances have joined in the final decision.
It was not easy for Del Bosque. So well known soldier who was the engineer in charge to go with your own car from Madrid to Valencia to recruit to the ranks at Real Madrid striker who was breaking as a child. Today, not heard his name when the coach gave the 23 chosen. On his birthday tasted the bitter side of football.
What was a prize, Del Bosque does not want to become punishment. If Soldier is the concentration in Austrian lands was to recognize his brilliant season. Could descartarle of the first list. Bringing the Olympic team players. Now, should take the 'brown' to play a second friendly, against North Korea, knowing he will miss the big event. Valencia striker already guessed this decision.
The only smile that he has seen was this morning. When all his companions spent in huddle applause for his birthday. Soldier has been seriously, at times downcast and listless in the field. He has given everything in training but without that spark that led him to make day after day in a phase of the League. Just as he was seen off in the first 45 minutes of the first friendly against Serbia. He was sentenced.
"They're fucked now" tweeted habituation locked in his hotel in the mountains of Schruns. "I want my peers to be champions again." It has not been alone today. Among those colleagues I respect have been with him Juanfran Torres and Alvaro Arbeloa. The three are united by close friendship since he shared adventures in Madrid cantera.
The Confederations Cup is a year away. The qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup just three months. For them will resound the name of soldier who saved between their great memories the three goals scored in his return to Venezuela to the absolute. Today, absorbing negative news may not look optimistically to the future. The bitter birthday of his life prevent him, but Del Bosque will not let you into oblivion.
