Watch: Chelsea flop Alvaro Morata scores stunning volley for Spain

Videos

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata scored a stunning volley during Spain’s World Cup qualifier with Greece. 

Morata has been much maligned at club level, both for Chelsea and the Italian champions, but has often been his country’s leading striker.

Spain manager Luis Enrique has kept faith with Morata and the forward showcased his immense quality during Thursday’s World Cup qualifier.

Koke swept a long pass towards Morata, who was lurking in the Greece penalty area after an intelligently timed run.

Controlling the ball brilliantly on his chest, the Juventus man lashed home a close-range volley to give his country the lead.

With Spain looking to recover after a series of disappointing tournaments, they’ll need Morata to continue on this form at this summer’s Euros.
