Spain called up Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas to replace Diego Costa for the upcoming UEFA Nations League encounters against England and Croatia.
The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) said on Monday that Deigo Costa requested to be dropped for personal reasons.
Spain will play England at Wembley Stadium on Saturday in Luis Enrique’s first game in charge, then host Croatia three days later
Iago Aspas was left out of the squad last week despite having played at the World Cup.
Players arrived on Monday at the RFEF’s headquarters in Madrid — including Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata and Marcos Alonso, who are returning to the squad after being left out for the World Cup.
