YES! Villarreal veteran Cazorla wins emotional Spain recall

Villarreal midfielder Santi Cazorla has won a stunning recall to the Spain squad.

Four years after his last involvement with La Roja, Cazorla has been named by Luis Enrique in his latest squad.

Having battled with an Achilles injury for two yeas, the midfielder was cut loose by Arsenal at the end of last season. A deal with Villarreal wasn't secured until the 34 year-old had proved his fitness in preseason.

But now Cazorla has played his way into Enrique's Euro2020 plans after being named in the Spain squad today.

Spain face qualifiers next month against Faroe Islands (June 7) and Sweden (June 10).
