Conte reveals how Cahill and Morata get back into team

"This is a question for the coach of the national teams, not for me", Conte said when asked whether Cahill's and Morata's omissions placed doubt over their involvement in the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Morata is still held in high regard at Real as an academy graduate who helped the club to two La Liga titles and two Champions League crowns, and a return to his roots has been mooted.

"Zidane has changed a lot and now he is a much better coach and he knows how to manage us", Carvajal told Onda Cero.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insisted on Friday it is not his business whether or not Gary Cahill and Alvaro Morata go to the World Cup.

Morata - yet to score in 2018 - was among the headline absentees from the squad named by Lopetegui for worldwide friendlies against Germany and Argentina on March 23 and 27 respectively.

But Conte shrugged off concerns over their form, saying Morata could score against Leicester tomorrow, and revealed Cahill has already had a call from Gareth Southgate. He was inactive for a while and now he became active again in Atletico Madrid and with us.

Costa had not been called up in more than nine months because he couldn't play with Atletico until the team's transfer ban from Federation Internationale de Football Association ended in January.

"Diego, when he was playing, was part of our game, then he stopped playing and stopped coming", Lopetegui said. "It just gives him an option to compete for a spot". His options of going to the World Cup are still intact.

Diego Costa, Lucas Vazquez, Iago Aspas and Rodrigo are involved for Spain, which leaves the Chelsea outcast in a very hard position.

Also returning to the squad is Chelsea centre-back Cesar Azpilicueta, who was left out of Spain's previous two friendlies in November.

New additions to the squad were Valencia midfielder Dani Parejo, Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso and Villarreal midfielder Rodrigo Hernandez.

He started on the bench in Chelsea's midweek defeat at Barcelona.
