Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Hector Bellerin's Spain call-up

Hector Bellerin has been called into Spain's international squad for the first time.

Transfer deadline day was a quiet one for Arsenal - but there was one bright piece of unrelated news.

Young full-back Hector Bellerin was called up into Spain's international squad for the very first time, as reported Football Espana.

A year ago Bellerin was waiting to make his full Arsenal debut, and when he did against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League it did not end well.

He went on to put that behind him and seize the opportunity which came his way, due to two long injury lay-offs to right-back Mathieu Debuchy.

Bellerin's pace and composure in the final third gave Arsenal a real threat going forward, and save for one other poor display away to Stoke, his form was outstanding.

He earned a starting spot in the FA Cup Final and has continued his progress this season to date, so his recognition for Spain's senior team caps a dramatic 12 months for the full-back.

Arsenal fans have been having their say about Bellerin's call-up, via twitter, and discussed the worry that he could get tapped up for a return to Spain, having left Barcelona as a teenager, not to mention the increased worry of injury - but by and large are very happy for the 20-year-old former Watford loanee.
