Chelsea star vows to win back place

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata has vowed to do all he can to get back into the Spain squad following his snub for the latest World Cup qualifiers.

The Stamford Bridge star was left out by La Roja manager Vicente del Bosque for games with Belarus and France, despite being in sparkling form for Roberto di Matteo’s side.

Despite the disappointment, the Chelsea playmaker took a philosophical view of the situation and insisted he would show the necessary determination and improvement to win his place back.

“What Del Bosque said is the reality," Mata told French radio station RMC.

“There are many very good players and competition is hard. I have to work to come back, it's up to me.”

There can be little argument with Mata’s assertion that there are plenty of top class players for Spain to choose from, as they have the likes of Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas, Busquets, Xabi Alonso & Santi Cazorla lining up to get the midfield spots.

Mata’s Chelsea team-mate, Fernando Torres, is in the squad and expressed sympathy for his plight last week, revealing the 24-year-old was feeling understandably “sad”, especially since he was a part of the history-making Euro 2012 squad.
