West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals credits manager David Moyes for his return to the Spain squad.

Fornals scored on his return to international duty in the recent 2022 World Cup qualifier win over Kosovo.

The midfielder said: "The first thing I did when I saw the Spain squad list was say thanks to the gaffer and to my team-mates. Without the work of every one of us, I could not be there.

"I'm really proud of my team-mates and all the staff as well. For everyone who can represent his country playing football, it's a massive thing so I am really happy."

The 25-year-old, who made his LaLiga breakthrough with Malaga, was not at West Ham when Moyes was first in charge, but is aware the impression he made on his team-mates.

Fornals added: "We spoke about it. It was a bit of a similar moment. The team wasn't too good, the gaffer came and saved the team.

"In this second time he has stayed with us, we have just kept doing what we do and that's why we are where we are."
