Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has been called up to the Spain squad for the first time for their match against Italy tonight, but the 27-year-old said he thought the call-up was a hoax. According to Goal.com, Herrera was first told about the selection by club team-mate David de Gea and was not convinced by his initial phone call. Herrera said: “He said, ‘Come over here.’ ‘Here? But where’s here?’ I replied. “I didn’t realise at that moment. “[Spain manager Julen] Lopetegui told me that you will come with us,’ he said. I thought it was a joke, and even asked him if it was.”
