Spain head coach Luis Enrique has explained why Sergio Ramos and Ansu Fati were left out the latest squad for the upcoming international break.

Enrique named his squad for the games against Switzerland and Portugal, which will serve as preparation for the FIFA World Cup in November.

Ramos has been a regular for Paris Saint-Germain this season, making 10 appearances across all competitions under new manager Christophe Galtier.

"It is great news to see Sergio Ramos on the field again. He is competing regularly every three days. However, I consider that the best ones are the ones I have summoned and the rest is white smoke," Enrique said, as per COPE.

Fati has been another player who has overcome his injuries with Barcelona and has registered two goals and two assists in his first five LaLiga games.

“We brought him in previously to get into the dynamics of the group. So that he has contact with the national team," he added.

"He did not play, now he does in his club, but he has only played one official game as a starter. It says something.”
