Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba says Spain's players are waiting on Sergi Busquets' return.

The midfielder is expected to be back after serving his quarantine.

Alba said: “I think we all know the captain is Busquets. We want him back. He's a visual player for us on the pitch and as a human, Until then I will do what I can to help."

Alba is one of the few veterans in the squad, with Luis Enrique picking a very young Spain quad.

“In the name of the national team, we send our support to Christian Eriksen," said Alba. “And his family. We send him support and love. I hope we can see him back on the pitch too."
