Morata happy for Chelsea pal Alonso over Spain call

Alvaro Morata is happy for Chelsea teammate Marcos Alonso over his Spain call.

Both players are in Luis Enrique's first Spain squad this week.

Morata said: "It's clear that he deserved it, I'm very happy for him.

"I'm his friend, he's one of the most important players for Chelsea, today I told him how weird to see him around here."

Morata also admits he'd like to play with Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

He added: "I wish I could play someday with him, there are a lot of people who cannot imagine what friends we are.

"Five minutes after the list for Russia, when I was very upset, I wrote to him and Iago (Aspas): let's see if you can bring the World Cup home."
