Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been omitted from the Spain squad for the upcoming matches against Luxembourg and Ukraine
The Chelsea striker has been everything but prolific in front of goal for club and country this season. Also accumulation of yellow cards has further compounded issues for Costa who is to serve out an international ban of one game.
The development means recalls for Juventus’ Alvaro Morata and Celta Vigo hotshot Nolito.
Other new faces include Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez and Villarreal captain Bruno Soriano, but Aritz Aduriz continues to be overlooked, despite his 11 goals for Athletic Bilbao.
La Roja host Group C strugglers Luxembourg in Euro 2016 qualifying next Friday, before travelling to Ukraine the following Monday.
Spain squad in full: Casillas, De Gea, Rico; Carvajal, Pique, Ramos, Alba, Juanfran, Bartra, Inigo Martinez, Azpilicueta; Busquets, Bruno, Cesc, Isco, Cazorla, Thiago, Mata, Silva; Morata, Pedro, Alcacer, Nolito
