Costa & Mata back for Spain

Diego Costa and Juan Mata have been recalled by Vicente del Bosque for Spain's upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers against Slovakia and Macedonia.

The Chelsea striker and Manchester United attacker were not selected by La Roja for June's matches against Costa Rica and Belarus, the former still recovering from a troublesome hamstring, but both men will now look to help their country topple the Slovaks in Group C.

However, despite his recent heroics for Athletic Bilbao in front of goal, Aritz Aduriz is not named, with the former Real Madrid Coach preferring Costa and Paco Alcacer as his No 9 options.

Spain squad in full: Casillas (Porto), De Gea (Manchester United), Rico (Sevilla); Juanfran (Atletico Madrid), Carvajal (Real Madrid), Pique (Barcelona), Ramos (Real Madrid), Bartra (Barcelona), Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Alba (Barcelona), Alba (Barcelona); Koke (Atletico Madrid), Busquets (Barcelona), Mata (Manchester United), Silva (Manchester City), Cesc (Chelsea), Cazorla (Arsenal), Iniesta (Barcelona), Isco (Real Madrid); Vitolo (Sevilla), Pedro (Chelsea), Alcacer (Valencia), Costa (Chelsea)
