Spain squad announcement on 18 May

The Spanish FA have confirmed that Spain Coach Julen Lopetegui will confirm his 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup on Friday 18 May.

The squad unveiling will be made in the Distrito Telefónica building in the barrio of Las Tablas in Madrid ahead of this summer’s tournament in Russia.

A number of players will be hoping for a spot in the plane with much of the focus centred on the strikers – with one of Diego Costa, Rodrigo Moreno, Iago Aspas and Alvaro Morata set to miss out.

Spain’s first game will be against Portugal in Sochi in 15 June before facing Iran five days later in Kazan before rounding off their group stage campaign against Morocco in Kalingrad on 25 June.
