Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, suffered another major blow on Monday after Spain snubbed him ahead of this month’s international break.
Kepa, who is currently behind Edouard Mendy in Chelsea’s choice of goalkeepers at Stamford Bridge, was not called up by Spain coach, Luis Enrique, for their World Cup qualifiers against Greece, Georgia and Kosovo.
The 26-year-old has always been a regular in the Spain national team set up despite always playing second fiddle to Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, but this time he wasn’t called.
According to Daily Post, Enrique insisted on calling Brighton’s Robert Sánchez and Athletic Bilbao’s Unai Simón ahead of Kepa.
Spain’s squad against Greece, Georgia and Kosovo:
Goalkeepers: De Gea, Robert Sánchez, Unai Simón.
Defenders: Pedro Porro, Eric García, Sergio Ramos, Diego Llorente, Iñigo Martínez, Jordi Alba, Gayá.
Midfielders: Busquets, Rodri, Thiago, Pedri, Marcos Llorente, Canales, Koke, Fabián
Forwards: Gerard Moreno, Ferran Torres, Oyarzabal, Morata, Bryan Gil, Dani Olmo
