Euro 2016: Diego Costa, Mata, Torres out in Spain squad.
Del Bosque has offered call-ups to Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez and Real Madrid’s Lucas Vazquez, who are both yet to make a senior appearance for Spain, while also including Athletic Bilbao veteran Aritz Aduriz, Villarreal midfielder Bruno Soriano and Barcelona centre-back Marc Bartra.
Brazil-born Costa was persuaded to switch allegiance to Spain ahead of the 2014 World Cup, but he has yet to enjoy any real success with La Roja after suffering injuries and disciplinary issues at club level, as well as a record of just one goal in 10 games for the country.
