Manchester City's Eric Garcia and Ferran Torres, along with Wolves winger Adama Traore, have been called up to the Spain squad for the Nations League matches against Germany and Ukraine in September.

Wolves' Traore missed out on making his international debut last November due to injury, while City defender Garcia and new signing Torres have been included in the squad for the first time.
