lvaro Morata has missed out on a place in Spain's squad for the World Cup in Russia, with Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso, Ander Herrera and Hector Bellerin also omitted by Julen Lopetegui.

 

Lopetegui named his 23-man squad for the tournament on Monday, with four Premier League players included - David de Gea, Cesar Azpilicueta, Nacho Monreal and David Silva.

However, there was no place for Chelsea striker Morata, with Isco, Sergio Asensio, Lucas Vazquez, Rodrigo and Diego Costa preferred in attack.

Morata has struggled for fitness and form since joining the Blues from Real Madrid last summer, and has scored just 11 goals in the Premier League since arriving in England.

Meanwhile, Andres Iniesta has been included in the squad the day after playing his final game for Barcelona.

Spain open their tournament against neighbours Portugal on June 15 before they face Iran and Morocco in their remaining Group B fixtures.

 

Spain squad for 2018 World Cup:

 

Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Pepe Reina, Kepa Arrizabalaga

 

Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola, Gerard Piqué, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jordi Alba, Nacho Monreal

 

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Saúl, Koke, Thiago Alcantara, Andres Iniesta, David Silva

 

Forwards: Isco, Sergio Asensio, Lucas Vázquez, Iago Aspas, Rodrigo, Diego Costa
