Aitor Paredes Called Up To The Spain U19 Team
Lezama continues to produce exciting young talent and every year players are taking the next step towards become professional footballers and achieving their dreams of stepping onto the grass at the San Mamés. Being able to compete on the international stage certainly helps development and it is always a great thing when a young player is called up.
On Friday Lezama graduate and current CD Basconia center-back Aitor Paredes was called up to the Spain U19 team. He will travel with the squad to Caserta to face off with the Italian U19 team in a match on 16 January.
Paredes is one of the top young defenders at the club and has become a mainstay in the Basconia lineup. He had the chance to train with Bilbao Athletic over the summer and could earn a full promotion after this season. He’s served as the team Captain and was previously called up to the U19 in September and November. Last year he and Oihan Sancet helped lead Spain’s U18 team who won the Mediterranean Games.
