Arsenal's Hector Bellerin in action with Norwich's Cameron Jerome
Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has taken to social networking site Twitter to share his delight at being named in Spain’s squad for Euro 2016.
The Arsenal star has been named in Vincente del Bosque’s squad for the tournament after Real Madrid full back Dani Carvajal was ruled out.
He picked up a hip injury in the Champions League final win over Atletico Madrid, with scans later revealing he had a grade two tear of his hip flexor muscle.

That injury ruled him out of the tournament in France and Bellerin called up in his place, making his international debut in the 3-1 win over Bosnia on Sunday.
It is naturally a big moment in the young Gunners stars’ career, and he has taken to Twitter to share his delight.
Bellerin will now be hoping he can become a regular in the Spain team, especially in France, where they will be hoping to retain their crown.
His call up marks what have been a big two years for him, after breaking into the Arsenal first team the season before last.
He is now firmly established as the Gunners right back, and he will be keen to ensure it is the same for the national side moving forward.
