U-21s: Jese in for Koke

Jese Rodriguez has come into the Spain Under-21 squad as a replacement for Koke, who has had to withdraw through injury.

The Atletico Madrid attacker was named in Julen Lopetegui’s squad to play Denmark Under-21s in this fortnight’s two-legged play-off for a place in next summer’s European Championships in Israel.

However, the 20-year-old, who has been capped five times at this level by his country, has had to withdraw after tests confirmed that his inner thigh strain picked up is more serious that first thought.

Subsequently, Real Madrid Castilla man Jese is included in the Atleti man’s place for the games scheduled to take place on October 11 and 16.
