Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera still awaits his first call-up to the Spanish national team.
The 26-year-old was once again overlooked by Vicente Del Bosque despite his stellar performances for Man United off late. Herrera has openly admitted that his current aim is to break into the Spanish side and he would have every right to feel aggrieved that he is still waiting for his first cap.
Spain’s plethora of midfielders over the past few years have made it difficult for Herrera to make an impact on the international stage. However, since his move to United, the Spaniard has put himself on the map with some eye-catching displays but is still unable to find a way into the team.

Herrera will feel hard done by seeing Cesc Fabregas in the squad ahead of him. On current form, there is no comparison between the two players as Fabregas continues to struggle along with his Chelsea side. He has been a shade of his former self this campaign and there is no doubting that Herrera would offer his country more than the Chelsea midfielder.
Juan Mata and David De Gea have both been called up by Del Bosque as they keep their places in the side. Herrera will certainly be disappointed to see his teammates getting their chance to represent their country but it is perfect motivation for the midfielder to work hard and stake a claim for his place in the side.
