Marcos Alonso has been brilliant in his left wing-back role for Chelsea, but was yet again denied the chance to represent Spain in the national team. Spain’s coach Julen Lopetegui chose to hand a call-up to Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal ahead of Alonso, and the Blues fans can’t understand why.
LOL. The Spain Manager picks the useless Monreal over Marcos Alonso. Sure, that makes sense. Monreal isnt good enough to be their mascot. xD

It’s easy to see why Chelsea fans are surprised with Lopetegui’s team selection; while Alonso has been a mainstay in starting lineup and has been consistent with his performances, the same cannot be said about Monreal. Not to forget that Alonso has scored four goals in the Premier League this season.
