As it is, two-time Chelsea Player of the Year Juan Mata struggles to get game time for the national team.
The former Valencia man only played three minutes in Euro 2012, and while he started the Confederations Cup final that La Roja lost 3-0 to Brazil, Mata only played 141 minutes for the duration of the tournament.
Ever since the arrival of Jose Mourinho as Chelsea manager, Mata has found himself on the bench, with more hard-working players such as Oscar and Willian preferred.
If Mata doesn't find his way back into the team, he could be relinquishing his place in the national team having only featured thrice in Spain's last seven games.
And with players like Jesus Navas, Koke, Pedro and David Silva in form, it looks like that might be the case.
