New Spain Coach Recalls Costa, Mata; Drops Fabregas, Casillas, Cazorla

New Spain manager Julen Lopetegui has recalled Juan Mata and Diego Costa to the national team after both England-based stars missed Euro 2016.
Spain will play Belgium and Liechtenstein in Lopetegui’s first games since succeeding Vicente del Bosque this summer.

However, Arsenal duo Hector Bellerín and Santi Cazorla, as well as Iker Casillas and Cesc Fabregas have been left out, with makeshift Barcelona right-back Sergi Roberto picked over Bellerín.

West Ham goalkeeper Adrián also receives a first senior call-up in the 23-man squad.

Saúl Ñiguez and Paco Alcacer – also overlooked for the Euros – are back in and there’s a second inclusion for 20-year-old Real Madrid starlet Marco Asensio.

Lopetegui explains why he left out the iconic Casillas, who was second choice at the Euros.

“Iker is an icon but in this case we have decided that our number 1 is going to be De Gea, but in no way are we going to close the door on him,” the ex-Porto head coach said.

Spain Squad:
Goalkeepers: David De Gea, Jose Manuel Reina, Adrián.

Defenders: Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Marc Bartra, Sergi Roberto, Dani Carvajal, Javi Martinez, Jordi Alba, Cesar Azpilicueta.

Midfielders: Saúl Ñiguez, Marco Asensio, Sergio Busquets, Thiago, Koke, David Silva, Juan Mata, Lucas Vazquez, Vitolo.

Forwards: Paco Alcacer, Nolito, Alvaro Morata, Diego Costa.
