Munir in Spain Under-21 squad

Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi has been named in the Spain Under-21 squad for the European Under-21 Championships play-off.

La Rojita meet Serbia for a place in next year’s tournament, to be held in the Czech Republic, with the first leg played away from home a week on Friday.

Munir’s Barca teammates Sandro Ramirez, Sergi Roberto and Gerard Deulofeu – currently at Sevilla – are also in the party.

Real Madrid midfielder Isco is picked as well, alongside Atletico’s Saul Niguez and Oliver Torres, who is spending the season at Porto.
