Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba has been called into the Spain squad for the first time since Luis Enrique took charge.

Alba has been the headline omission of his former Barca boss’ international tenure, despite being first choice and in fine form for LaLiga’s champions.

But the 29-year-old is back in favour for the concluding Nations League clash with Croatia and a friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina, with Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso missing out.

Paco Alcacer misses out despite returning from injury in Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win over Wolfsburg last weekend, while there is still no place for Diego Costa. 

Fitness issues in midfield, where Thiago Alcantara leads the absentees, have contributed to call-ups for Celta Vigo’s Brais Mendez and Villarreal’s Pablo Fornals. 

In defence, Diego Llorente of Real Sociedad and Mario Hermoso of Espanyol are included alongside Inigo Martinez, who is back despite playing 90 minutes in the Basque derby 24 hours after it was confirmed he would miss Spain’s matches against Wales and England.
