Alvaro Morata has responded to his absence from
Muchísima suerte en el Mundial!! Desde ya estaré apoyando y animando hasta el final como siempre!!— Álvaro Morata (@AlvaroMorata) May 21, 2018
Meanwhile, former Real Madrid star Michel - who played over 400 La Liga games for Los Blancos and was capped 66 times by Spain - has questioned Morata's decision to ditch Madrid for London last summer.
A drop in form since an impressive start has seen the 25-year-old lose his place to January signing Olivier Giroud in places, making his omission from Spain's squad more or less a no-brainer.
Quoted by Marca this week, Michel said: "I don't know why he left, if it was because he wanted to play more, if it was because he wanted a better contract and because he wanted to play in the English league.
"At the end of the day he is in a similar situation as to when he was at Real Madrid, he will know personally why he took the decision. I'm of those who think that if you're at Real Madrid the best thing is to not leave but I don't know what his thinking is."
