Diego Costa withdraws from Spain squad

Diego Costa

Atletico Madrid’s 29-year-old former Chelsea striker will be replaced by Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas, 31. Diego Costa has withdrawn from Spain’s squad for Uefa Nations League games against England and Croatia over “personal reasons”, the Spanish Football Federation says.

Spain faces England at Wembley in Group A4 of the new tournament on Saturday, their first match under Luis Enrique. The ex-Barcelona boss named his first squad since taking charge on Friday.

He left out Barca left-back Jordi Alba and Atletico midfielder Koke, while Andres Iniesta, David Silva and Gerard Pique have all retired from playing for Spain since this summer’s World Cup last-16 exit under Fernando Hierro.
