Michu received his first call-up to the Spain squad on Sunday following David Villa's withdrawal.

Villa sustained an ankle injury in Atletico Madrid's win over Celta Vigo this afternoon and was forced to pull out of the party to face Belarus and Georgia in a World Cup qualifying double-header.

His misfortune gives Michu the chance to represent his country for the first time at any level.
