Traore Out Of Spain Squad Injured One Day After First Call-Up
NOV 11, 2019 FOOTBALL NEWS

Wolves winger Adama Traore was forced to withdraw from the Spain squad with injury on Sunday just one day after receiving his maiden international call-up.

He was drafted in as a replacement for the injured Rodrigo on Saturday but pulled out after Wolves' 2-1 derby win over Aston Villa.

The 23-year-old has now been replaced in the squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Malta on November 15 and Romania three days later by Paris Saint-Germain's Pablo Sarabia.

"Unfortunately, I won't be able to answer the call of the squad because of an injury suffered during the match against Aston Villa on Sunday," said Traore.

"I'm sorry I can't be part of this list but will continue to work to be in the best shape possible for future squads."

Traore's call-up was a surprise, as he had reportedly closed the door on Spain earlier this week to play for Mali, despite representing the Spanish under-21 side earlier this year.
