Thiago Alcantara excluded from Spain's Nations League squad

The 31-year-old has only played four games for Liverpool this season. One of these games was the Community Shield, However, he had to miss five games due to a hamstring problem that he suffered on the first day of the season against Fulham.

Thiago returned to action at the beginning of the month; he played just under half an hour in the 4-1 defeat away at Napoli last week and made his first start since the Fulham setback in the 2-1 winners over Ajax at Amsterdam.

The postponement of two of Liverpool's league games was caused by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II last week. The two postponed games were a home fixture against Wolves last week, as well as a trip to face Chelsea this week.

Thiago has appeared for his country in over 40 games since he was first included in the lineup in 2011 at 20 years of age. However, he's had a limited role in recent years and has been called up to the squad on only one occasion since the Euros held last year.

While he continues to regain fitness, Thiago's removal from the squad recently caused a significant strain among a host of injury problems in the team. The Liverpool midfielder is expected to make a significant impact during an intense stretch of games in October and November and Getting rid of the player would be a major positive for Klopp and Liverpool for this reason.

Although it will come as a threat to the midfielder's World Cup ambitions, the FIFA biggest tournament which is just months away.
