With the time that Alvaro Morata’s being having at Chelsea, you would have thought that playing for Spain would be a relief for him.
Despite playing well over the last few weeks, Morata’s looked a forlorn figure.
This may have just been exacerbated by his most recent game against Everton – he was caught offside five times in the game.
Morata’s body language doesn’t endear himself to Chelsea fans, but Maurizio Sarri continues to stick with him.
That could be down to a lack of options, but Sarri has said he needs to rebuild Morata’s fragile confidence.
Therefore, with all the negativity surrounding Morata at Chelsea, his selection for Spain was good for him.
He didn’t start Spain’s crucial Nations League game against Croatia – which they lost 3-2 – but did start their friendly with Bosnia.
And with the game poised nicely at 0-0, Morata had the perfect opportunity to break the deadlock:

Man! I've never met a footballer who has been as consistent in frustrating me than Morata. The number of goals he Costa Chelsea in every match is absolutely ridiculous! The most frustrating thing is that I still like him but he makes it so harddd!!!!!

Morata's problem isn't psychological. He just lacks the skills and talent to be an elite striker.

After minutes of intense searching through the clip I can confirm Morata did nothing wrong. It was clearly his selfish right foot that tried to stop his left foot from the scoring because it was jealous. #JusticeForMorata
