"La Roja" are to play Wales in a friendly on October 10, before hosting England in the UEFA Nations League five days later.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have confirmed the squad that will be employed by national team manager Luis Enrique for Spain's forthcoming international fixtures.

"La Roja" face play Wales in a friendly in Cardiff on October 10th followed by the second game of the UEFA Nations League when England travel to Seville to face Spain on Monday October 15.

There are recalls for Koke, Alcácer and Betis' player Marc Bartra whilst Wolves defender Jonny Otto gets his first ever international team call-up. The Spanish squad is currently plagued with injury preventing  the likes of Carvajal, Sergi Roberto, Íñigo Martínez and Isco from forming part of the 23-man-squad. Once again the stand-out omissions are Barcelona defender Jordi Alba and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.
