Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata will reportedly be dropped from the Spain squad for this summer's World Cup.

The 26-year-old started during his country's 2-0 victory over Bolivia this evening, but it is believed that Vicente del Bosque will cut him from his 30-man provisional squad.

According to Onda Cero, the Spain manager feels that he is too similar a player to Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Santi Cazorla.

Mata has made 31 appearances for Spain, helping the country to victory in the 2010 World Cup and in Euro 2012.
