The 23-year-old speedster was born in Spain and has represented them at various youth levels, and is also eligible to play for Mali through his parents.

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has been named in the latest Spain squad just days after appearing to declare his allegiance for Mali.

The forward, who has turned out for Spain's Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 sides, has scored twice for Wolves this season, both goals coming in a shock 2-0 win at Premier League champions Manchester City in October.

Moreno's call being made just a day after it broke in the Madrid press that Adama would commit his worldwide future to Mali.

Snow is returning to Northeast Ohio this week
We are forecasting daytime highs in the mid 20s and could easily break all records for Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. There is an 80 percent chance of that snow continuing until noon, becoming snow showers after that.

Traore's surprise selection for the Spanish national team was confirmed by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).

Spain-born Traore had been tipped to switch global allegiance to his parents' homeland of Mali, despite representing the Spanish under-21 side.

Traore came through Barcelona's La Masia academy before leaving to play in England with Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and now Wolves.

That form has earned him his first call-up to the Spain senior team for their qualifiers against Romania and Malta.
