Fed-up Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez chooses Spain over France

Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez has pledged his international future to Spain.

Lucas also qualified for France.

But Marca reports despite currently having a French passport, Lucas has opted to play for Spain and he is well within the time period which will allow him to represent the team in Russia.

The defender has accepted Spain's offer and the wheels are already in motion to secure his nationalisation.

The 21-year-old was expecting a similar call from Didier Deschamps, yet no such communication came and he has been left with little choice with regards to playing in the summer showpiece.
