Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been replaced in the Spain squad by Iago Aspas after suffering an injury. Costa was pictured taking part in the latest training session in Madrid on Thursday, despite having previously struggled with a groin problem that was expected to keep him out of the World Cup qualifier against Macedonia on Saturday.

Spain have since confirmed that the 28-year-old has been forced to return to London with a bruised thigh that he already had upon arriving with the squad.

The news comes as a big blow to Chelsea, with Costa having scored nine goals in 11 Premier League games to help Antonio Conte's side climb into second place in the table.
