PHOTO: Chelsea duo with Spain squad ahead of double-header

Chelsea stars Cesar Azpilicueta and Diego Costa have been photographed as the Spanish squad prepare for their next matches.

Chelsea duo Cesar Azpilicueta and Diego Costa are two of the players to have been photographed as the Spanish side gear up for their games against Slovakia and Luxembourg.

The Euro 2016 qualifiers take place on October 9 and October 12 and they will see the Spanish side hoping to secure their place at the top of Group C ahead of the Slovakian side who also won their opening match.

Costa and Azpilicueta will both be hoping to be involved, as will another Chelsea player Cesc Fabregas, and given the way the former Barcelona man has begun life at the Blues with Costa, it is hard to imagine their parternship will not be replicated at international level.

Costa is Spain's great hope given how well he has started life at Stamford Bridge, and he will want to show what he can do at international level after injury meant he was far from his best at last summer's World Cup.
