Lopetegui snubs Chelsea trio

Lopetegui snubs Chelsea trio for Spain call-up

September 30, 2016 By Ali M.
The Furia Roja boss named his squad for the upcoming international break.

Julen Lopetegui has been in charge of Spain for only one game, but his reign already looks destined to spell the end for some players.

The Furia Roja boss named his squad for the upcoming international break which will see the 2010 World Cup winners clash with Italy on October 6 and Albania on October 9.

Due to the number of talented players at his disposal, there was bound to be a few talented Spaniards left out. However, one man who should be worried is Cesc Fabregas.

His inability to land a spot in the Chelsea lineup is taking a toll, as the playmaker misses out on a call-up from Lopetegui once again.

Fabregas, who was also snubbed for the tie with Belgium, should start worrying about his position with the national side.

The Blues ace was also joined by two other Chelsea team-mates in the form of Pedro Rodriguez and Cesar Azpilicueta, with the latter’s absence making sense due to Chelsea’s defensive frailties.

Jose Callejon, the in-form Napoli attacker, makes his return to Spain after scoring five goals in six Serie A games. He will be joined by Barcelona playmaker Andres Iniesta, having recovered from injury.

Here's Spain's squad in full

Goalkeepers: David de Gea (Man United), Pepe Reina (Napoli) and Sergio Rico (Sevilla)

Defenders: Nacho (Real Madrid), Jordi Alba (Barca), Gerard Pique (Barca), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Sergi Roberto (Barcelona) and Javi Martinez (Bayern)

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barca), David Silva (Man City), Thiago Alcantara (Bayern Munich), Saul Níguez (Atletico), Koke (Atletico), Isco (Real Madrid)

Attackers: Alvaro Morata (Real Madrid), Lucas Vazquez (Real Madrid), Nolito (Man City), Callejon (Napoli), Diego Costa (Chelsea) and Vitolo (Sevilla)
