David Villa. Hm, I wonder who he is? :mrgreen: He has been thriving under the astute management of Patrick Vieira, the Dean :thumbs: of coaches in the Americas. ... qualifying

David Villa is set for a surprise return to international football after he was called up to the Spain squad for the first time since the 2014 World Cup to play in their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The 35-year-old striker, who is Spain’s record goalscorer with 59 from 97 appearances, has been in prolific form for New York City this season scoring 19 goals in 24 MLS games, making him the league’s top scorer.

“We believe that calling up Villa is necessary and appropriate,” Julen Lopetegui, the Spain manager, said. “He’ll give us extra mobility up front and above all he’ll contribute his enthusiasm. We hope and believe he will help us.”

Villa replaces Diego Costa, who has been excluded from the 26-man squad to face Italy and Liechtenstein. Costa continues to be in exile from Chelsea following a fallout with the manager Antonio Conte and did not play any part in pre-season.

Two uncapped players, the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and the Milan midfielder Suso, have also been named in the squad. Spain host Italy on 2 September for what is likely to be a decisive fixture in group G, with both teams on 16 points after six games, before travelling to Liechtenstein on 5 September.
