Nations League line-ups: Croatia-Spain

Jordi Alba is back in Spain’s starting XI for their Nations League clash with Croatia this evening.

Alba had been absent from Luis Enrique’s first two Spain squads, but the left-back starts for the first time under the former Barcelona boss.

Joining him from Barca is teammate Sergi Roberto, who replaces Jonny Castro on the opposite side.

Elsewhere, Athletic Bilbao’s Inigo Martinez partners Sergio Ramos in central defence, Dani Ceballos comes in for the injured Thiago Alcantara through the middle and Isco completes a trident attack with Iago Aspas and Rodrigo Moreno.

La Roja will qualify for the Final Four of the Nations League with victory in Zagreb, and they have already thrashed Croatia 6-0 this season.
