Spain coach Luis Enrique Martínez has revealed the squad for the matches against Croatia on the 15th November and Bosnia on the 18th November. The biggest surprise is the return of Jordi Alba to the list.

In the hours leading up to the announcement many believed Alba wouldn't be selected despite his fine form for Barcelona this season.

The released squad list has ended those suspicions though. Luis Enrique has taken a step back and recalled Alba to the squad. Marcos Alonso is the one to miss out at that left-back spot.

Here is Luis Enrique's squad list:

Goalkeepers: De Gea, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Pau López

Defenders: Jonny Otto, Azpilicueta, Llorente, Sergio Ramos, Mario Hermoso, Iñigo Martinez, Gayá, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto.

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Fornals, Brais, Sergi Roberto, Saúl, Ceballos, Rodri.

Forwards: Suso, Rodrigo, Iago Aspas, Morata, Isco y Asensio

Whilst the match against Croatia is crucial in the UEFA Nations League, following Spain's 2-1 loss to England, as La Roja look to finish top of the group, the friendly against Bosnia will allow Luis Enrique to experiment with new players and potentially alternative systems.
