Morata wasn't happy with Spain snub, admits Alonso

Alvaro Morata has been struggling for form with Chelsea this season

The Chelsea forward was left out of worldwide friendlies against Germany and Argentina.

Morata found the net with a confident sidefoot finish in Chelsea's 2-1 FA Cup win over Leicester on Sunday.

The Blues have endured a hard campaign, having seen their Premier League title defence fade away some time ago while their UEFA Champions League adventure ended at the last-16 following defeat to Barcelona last week.

"I don't know whether or not my call up is late or not, but the most important thing is that I am here now", said Alonso in a press conference held at the Spain training ground, just outside of Madrid.

"Alvaro wasn't happy", he admitted, "he has had a couple of hard months with a back problem, but he is 100 percent fit now and he scored the other day". "I am very happy and really looking forward to it", he said.

"It's great to pass through into the next round and it's very important for us to get the confidence and to fight from now until the end of the season".
