Morata left out of Spain squad, Diego Costa returns

Alonso has been one of the Premier League's best defenders since joining Chelsea from Fiorentina, however the presence of Jordi Alba means worldwide experience has been hard to come by.

Spain coach Julen Lopetegui has given Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso his first call-up and also welcomed Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa back to the squad for the worldwide friendlies later this month.

"This is a question for the coach of the national teams, not for me", Conte said when asked whether Cahill's and Morata's omissions placed doubt over their involvement in the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

"There is only one way: to work hard and show you deserve to play", Conte said.

Now his only worldwide experience consists of three appearances for Spain's Under-19 side in 2009 while he was still a Madrid player.

"There are many players who could be called up, who deserve it and haven't been included because we have to keep the squad to a certain number".

"But he's not out of our thoughts and he has his chances to go to the World Cup".

Cahill was not included in Gareth Southgate's latest England selection named this week but having been manager of Italy before taking the Chelsea job, Conte is able to explain some of the thinking of a person in that role, with England now qualified and playing friendlies in the build-up to the tournament.

Sessions mulling firing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe before he retires
DOJ's inspector general is conducting a broader investigation of the FBI's handling of the Clinton probe that is expected to examine Comey's actions.

Morata was a second-half substitute in Chelsea's 3-0 defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday, which ended the European journey of the reigning Premier League champions.

The likes of Vitolo, Luis Alberto, Suso, and Marc Bartra have also dropped out from Spain's last selection, but Lopetegui says the World Cup door is not shut to anybody.

'We must also try and find a place in the Champions League but we know it will not be easy'.

Both men could start in their FA Cup clash at the King Power, and Morata could certainly do with a goal as he is scoreless in his last 13 club games.

"Alvaro has always been with us", Lopetegui said.

"Leicester is a good team".

Costa had completed a 57 million pound ($79.6 million) deal to rejoin Atletico from Chelsea in September, but the move was delayed by La Liga club's ban on registering new players, which expired on January 1. Chelsea's Pedro Rodriguez and Victor "Vitolo" Machin were left out.

Marquitos, who passed away six years ago, played twice for Spain and spent eight years at Real Madrid.
