Wolves star Jonny receives Spain call-up while Jordi Alba misses out

Wolves left-back Jonny Otto has received his first call-up to the Spain national team.

The star joined the club from Atletico Madrid on loan this summer, after moving to the Wanda Metropolitano in the same window from Celta Vigo.

So far, he has started every Premier League match under Nuno Espirito Santo.

He has impressed the Molineux faithful with some positive performance in a left wing-back role.

His form has now been rewarded by the Spanish national side. They have called him up for their friendly with Wales and the UEFA Nations League clash with England.

Wolves have as many Spaniards called up as Barcelona

Interestingly, Jonny’s inclusion means that Wolves have the same number of Spanish players called up as Barcelona – their star being Sergio Busquets.

Whether Jonny actually features in either of the two games or not is another thing.

Arguably Marcos Alonso and Jose Gaya are ahead of him in the pecking order.

Jonny ability underlined by shock Jordi Alba omission

Remarkably, Jonny’s inclusion has seemingly prompted a surprise snub for Jordi Alba.

It would appear that there might be some friction between Alba and Luis Enrique, with the player having started the season well.

On Wednesday, Alba recorded a hat-trick of assists against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League, but it’s Jonny who’s got the nod.
