Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has named Sevilla FC trio Sergio Rico, Vitolo and Aleix Vidal in the squad for the friendly meeting with Costa Rica and the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifier against Belarus. They have been rewarded after a fine campaign at home and abroad for the UEFA Europa League finalists. Youngsters José Gayà, Juanmi, Jonny Castro, Saúl Ñíguez and Rubén Duarte will also take part in training with La Roja.
Villarreal CF's Sergio Asenjo has been ruled out for at least six months after tearing cruciate knee ligaments in Wednesday's 1-0 defeat by Club Atlético de Madrid. It is the third time the 25-year-old goalkeeper, who was included in Spain's squad last month, has suffered the injury.
