Luis Alberto: 'Spain call-up my best moment'

Lazio attacker Luis Alberto brands his call-up to the latest Spain squad 'his best moment in football'.

Lazio attacker Luis Alberto has branded his call-up to the latest Spain squad 'his best moment in football'.

The 25-year-old has scored three times and provided seven assists in 16 appearances for Lazio this season, with his form earning him a spot in the La Roja squad for the upcoming friendlies against Costa Rica and Russia.

Alberto has revealed that he was overcome with emotion upon learning that he was a part of the selection for the first time.

"This is the best thing that has ever happened to me in football," Alberto told Marca. "I was at home with my wife and kept an eye on the list. The first name out was Alberto Moreno, who is like a brother to me, and after three or four names, mine appeared.

"It was a moment of maximum euphoria, I dropped the phone and we embraced. After that, I sent messages to my friends, family, to a group where there are several players."

Alberto represented Liverpool for three years between 2013 and 2016 before making the move to Lazio.
