Spain to include Susaeta for first time



Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has for the first time included Athletic Bilbao right winger Markel Susaeta to reinforce his attacking line-up for the friendly away in Panama.

Suaseta has scored five times in 19 club appearances and will, if picked to play, likely be just in front of Barcelona right back Martin Montoya.

Susaeta, who helped Athletic reached the final of the Europa League last season by scoring four times in eight appearances, has played for Spain Under-21s.

Del Bosque also summoned Chelsea attacking midfielder Juan Mata after he missed Spain's last two outings. Susaeta, however, will not be supplying crosses to Fernando Torres, who was not called on by Del Bosque.
