Morata bids for fitness with hamstring test by the Spanish national team

Morata bids for fitness with hamstring test by the Spanish national team”

Spain host Albania in Alicante on 6 October before travelling to Israel three days later - with Julen Lopetegui's side needing four points from their final two games to confirm qualification for Russian Federation 2018.

Following the tests, it was officially announced that Morata, as well as Dani Carvajal and Andres Iniesta, had withdrawn from Spain's squad for the World Cup qualifiers.

While Saturday's early substitution was probably as much precaution as actual injury, if Morata is able to play less than a week later, it's unlikely to be a smart idea - not to mention not a great look following his game-changing injury against Manchester City.

Conte said: "It is a muscular problem, I don't think it is not a serious injury".

"He said to me, 'I prefer to stop myself, otherwise I risk a bad injury.' The doctor now in the next [few] days has to check the situation, but I don't think he's available for the national team".

Finally Real Madrid right back Carvajal missed Sunday's game at home to Espanyol with pericarditis, which is an inflammation surrounding the heart, and will be out of action for an as-yet unspecified length of time. Diego Costa was overlooked to replace Motata with the new Atletico Madrid striker having not played this season.

Spain now leads Group G of European World Cup qualifying with 22 points, three ahead of Italy with two games left.
