Why not? He's doing well, he's not a "5", he can't be a Guardiola or a Redondo, because he loses too many balls for a player that plays in that position, but he is a good playmaker, one of the top assistants of La Liga for the 2nd year in a row. One of the key players of "Apanyó".

Considering the poor form of Raul and Valerón... why not?

I've always liked Ivan but the guy hasnt even played regularly for Espanyol despite his unquestionable talent and be it because of Lotina or not, but Espanyol are doing fine without him.

One player that MUST get a chance with La Seleccion is David Villa !

De La Peña plays regularly in Espanyol, normally as starter and when Lotina considers it´s better to put him in the second half he "changes" the game for Espanyol´s benefit, he´s very important for the team.

If he continues like this he could make it, his problem is that he can´t play in the midfield since he needs 2 men behind him and there are a lot of players for that position.

I always thought IDLP should atleast be a sub on the NT, but Txupa makes some good points on how he wouldn't fit in very well if we play him to his most suitable formation.

Agreed on Villa, the guy is too good not to atleast have a 20-30 minute run, especially against San Marino, he could score 100 against them!
