Morata Dropped From Spain’s World Cup Squad

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has missed out on being named in Spain’s squad for the 2018 World Cup.

The former Real Madrid forward has struggled for form in the second half of his first campaign at Stamford Bridge, scoring 15 goals in 47 appearances for the Blues having joined for a club record £60 million ($80.5m) in the summer of 2017.
