Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is surprised Spain is ignoring teammate Mikel Arteta.
Arteta was again overlooked by coach Vicente Del Bosque for Wednesdayâ€™s friendly in Panama, while Cazorla, who has won 50 caps, is in the 19-man party.
â€śIâ€™m really surprised he has never been called up,â€ť Cazorla said. â€śHeâ€™s performing incredibly well. He had a number of good seasons for Everton and now heâ€™s vice-captain at Arsenal. He should have been given the chance.
â€śItâ€™s difficult because there is a lot of competition in that position and they are all great players but Iâ€™m still surprised he has never been given the opportunity.â€ť
