Marcos Alonso will not feature at the World Cup finals after he was axed from Spain’s World Cup squad.
The Chelsea defender had been widely tipped to be included in the group travelling to Russia after another solid season at Stamford Bridge, but Alonso was one of four Chelsea players to be snubbed by Julen Lopetegui. The Spain coach instead elected to take Arsenal full-back Monreal: "Nacho has come with us many times," he said during Mondays press conference. "We know him well and we are convinced he will help us." There was no place for Alvaro Morata either who had been a regular up until March, but injury and a lack of form ultimately cost the former Real Madrid striker despite his five-goals during the qualification campaign: "It's not easy and the doubt always exists. In the case of Morata, he's had a complex season but he could have come. He hasn't because another player has convinced us more." Cesc Fabregas and Pedro Rodriguez complete the Chelsea contingent missing out this summer. May 21 - 4:04 PM
