Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has called up defensive midfielder Suarez after Xabi Alonso pulled out with a groin injury.

Real Madrid midfielder Alonso was hurt in Saturday night's 1-0 loss to Granada. He will be examined by the RFEF medical team to assess the extent of the injury but Del Bosque has wasted little time in replacing him in the squad.

A statement on the RFEF website confirmed that the uncapped Suarez, a 25-year-old former youth international, has earned his first call up.

The world and European champions will take on Uruguay in Doha.
