Costa replaced by Aspas in Spain squad

Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa has withdrawn from the Spain squad ahead of their upcoming games against England and Croatia, the national team announced on Monday.

Costa has pulled out for "family reasons" and will be replaced by Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas, who had been a surprise omission from Luis Enrique's first selection as manager.

Aspas scored for Celta in a 2-0 win over Atletico on Saturday and will now compete with Chelsea's Alvaro Morata and Rodrigo Moreno of Valencia up front.

Spain play England at Wembley in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday before hosting Croatia in Elche three days later.
