Spain begin the defence of their European Championship title on Monday, when they host Macedonia in their first qualifying match for the 2016 edition of the tournament.
Manager Vincent del Bosque is under pressure to produce an emphatic result after their World Cup humiliation, which saw them exit the tournament in Brazil at the group stage.
He will have to do without several member’s of his ‘golden generation’, with Xavi, Xabi Alonso and David Villa having followed Carles Puyol into international retirement, while Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta are also absent.
His new look team will also be without Fernando Torres, who has been overlooked for selection, and the injured Diego Costa, who was forced to withdraw from the squad last week.
Dani Carvajal, Mikel San Jose, Raul Garcia and Paco Alcacer all earned their first international caps in Spain’s underwhelming 1-0 friendly defeat by France last week, while Barcelona youngster Munir El Haddadi is another late call-up who could play a part.
Macedonia suffered disappointing Euro 2012 and 2014 World Cup qualification campaigns, with star player Goran Pandev quitting international football thereafter. They have failed to win, or score a goal, in their last four games.
Ukraine, Slovakia, Belarus and Luxembourg are the other teams in Group C.
