Marco Asensio is an injury doubt for Spain qualifiers

Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio is an injury doubt for Spain, ahead of their EURO 2020 qualifiers against Norway and Malta. 

The 23 year-old was called up to the squad by national team boss Luis Enrique, however he suffered a calf injury in training and now his participation in the double header is in doubt.

Enrique is set to make a decision on the situation in the next 24 hours, to allow for time to call up a replacement squad member if needed before Saturday's game in Valencia.

If Asensio is forced to withdraw, he will be the second casualty of Enrique's squad in less than a week after Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz had to be replaced by Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez after suffering from a fever.

Reserve goal keeper Pau Lopez is also an injury concern for the former Barcelona boss due to a neck problem.
