Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata has revealed that he really shocked
with his sensational omission from Spain’s squad for the double header ahead but
was quick to add that he will definitely make a swift return.
The form of the 24-year-old has been a key factor in the Blues moving to the top of the Premier League table.
And the former Valencia man also scored in the final of Euro 2012 as Spain crushed Italy 4-0 in Kiev in July.
But coach Vicente Del Bosque has not selected the player for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and France - and Mata's disappointment is obvious.
-I was excited about these games and confident I would make the squad," he said, quoted in The Sun.
-I've not spoken to the manager. The only thing I can do is keep playing well in order for him to pick me.
On his part, Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla who has had a fantastic influence on the Gunners since his arrival this summer from Malaga was rewarded with a surprise call up to the Spain national team ahead of the Chelsea player Juan Mata.
