Spain deliver Man Utd keeper De Gea new snub

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has suffered a new Spain snub.

The 31-year-old was a shock omission from the squad for Spain's March internationals to face Albania and Iceland, when the squad was announced earlier this month.

With the in-form goalkeeper left in the cold, David Raya, Robert Sanchez and first-team regular Unai Simon were called up.

On Saturday, the Brighton goalkeeper was forced to withdraw from their two friendlies due to personal reasons.

As his replacement, 20-year-old Barcelona B goalkeeper Arnau Tenas was called up to the senior squad.
