Marcos Alonso: Family 'delighted' to have third generation play for Spain

Chelsea left back Marcos Alonso comes from a footballing family which has seen both his father and grandfather (both also called Marcos) play global football for Spain, now aged 27 Marcos Alonso junior has finally received a call up into the Spain squad for the forthcoming friendly matches against Germany and Argentina.

The Chelsea number nine was omitted from the Spanish squad after a terrible run of form which saw him score just one goal in the whole of 2018, and that only came last weekend - after the squad was announced.

Morata joined the Blues from Real Madrid last summer.

But it was too little too late for him to impress Spain manager Julen Lopetegui.

He also looked ahead to the last two friendly matches before Lopetegui names his squad for the World Cup finals.

"He has gone through a hard few months with a back injury". He is a very important player for us.

"Of course Morata has a lot of possibilities to go to the World Cup and he knows it", he told El Partidazo de COPE. "He has to show these months the player he is inside".

Alonso meanwhile has a good chance of earning his first senior Spain cap in the next fortnight. He has not scored in his last seven Premier League appearances and missed out on two games due to a back injury. "But I'm very happy to score the goal and for the team to get the win".

"I also received many messages. I think his back is flawless now and hopefully, he can keep scoring, because we all know just how good he is". Although, he was still left out of the Spanish side for the worldwide break.
