Ferran Torres has started the season in fine form, and has scored twice, coming off from the bench.

Torres was initially snubbed from getting a call-up to the Spain national team.

However, after injuries to Marco Asensio and Dani Olmo, Spain have now called up Ferran Torres and Yeremy Pino to replace the injured duo.

Olmo and Asensio picked up the injury in Spain’s 7-1 win over Georgia.

Barcelona’s youngster Lamine Yamal scored a goal in that game.
