Juventus striker Llorente has no complaints over Spain omission

Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has accepted his omission from Spain's squad.

Spain meet Italy tonight.

"I need to accept Del Bosque's decision," Llorente said to Cadena Cope.

"I would have liked to have been in the squad but Diego Costa is having an incredible season.

"It would be a shame not to go to the World Cup but there is still a long time before the next squad is named.

"I will do my best.

"Juventus are having a good period. We have a great chance to win the League but we can't relax yet.

"In Italy everyone wants to win but at home we are very strong."
