Thiago out of Spain squad

Thiago Alcantara has left the Spain squad to play Belgium on Tuesday due to the knee injury picked up in Friday’s win over England.

The Spanish Football Federation [RFEF] confirmed on Saturday that following an MRI scan, the Bayern Munich midfielder would miss the game in Brussels and return to Germany for treatment.

Thiago suffered a right knee problem as La Roja beat the Three Lions 2-0, and the scan showed swelling on the 24-year-old’s medial collateral ligament.

Bayern have been kept up-to-date with Thiago’s condition, the report adds, after Thiago had to be substituted early in the win in Alicante.
