In a season which has seen Chelsea slip below expectations following a Premier League title win the previous year – not for the first time – Marcos Alonso has been one of the few players who has kept his standards high.
However, it has not been enough to earn the former Sunderland left-back a spot in the 23-man Spain boss Julen Lopetegui will take to Russia to compete for the World Cup.
Barcelona’s Jordi Alba and Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal are the two left-back options included, while Alonso’s Chelsea team-mate – the only of the Stamford Bridge Spaniards to be included – can also offer cover in that role, despite spending the past two seasons at centre-half.
Yet, it is arguable that Monreal enjoyed a better season than his London rival so we’re asking you; should Alonson have been included in Spain’s squad for this summer’s tournament?
