David de Gea left out of Spain squad for Reina

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been overlooked by Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque for the forthcoming 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and Georgia.

The 22-year-old has never been capped by Spain but was tipped to earn a call-up ahead of Pepe Reina after an outstanding season at Old Trafford, but Del Bosque has stuck by the latter, who has been replaced by Simon Mignolet at Liverpool and is subsequently now on loan at Napoli.

Would De Gea stand a better chance of playing for the Spanish national team if he was playing with a top side in La Liga? This could well cross the Spain Under-21 international's mind.

However, a handful of Premier League players have made the latest squad, including Manchester City trio Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and David Silva, plus Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata.

Tottenham's Roberto Soldado, who left Valencia for White Hart Lane, misses out on this occasion.

Spain squad for 2014 World Cup qualifiers v Belarus and Georgia:

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Reina, Valdés

Defenders: Arbeloa, Juanfran, Piqué, Albiol, Ramos, Monreal, Alberto Moreno

Midfielders: Busquets, M.Suárez, Xavi, Iniesta, Koke, Isco, Mata, Navas, Fabregas

Forwards: Negredo, Pedro, Silva, David Villa
