Coach Luis Enrique has called up Sergio Reguilon to replace the injured Jose Luis Gaya for Spain's World Cup qualifier against Kosovo, the Spanish soccer federation said on Monday.

Gaya was substituted in the 75th minute of the 4-0 win over Georgia on Sunday because of a muscle injury. The federation said the left back will undergo further tests but was left out regardless of the results as a precaution.

Gaya was one of several changes by Enrique after the 2-1 loss in Sweden last week. He scored the opener on Sunday with a shot from outside the area early in the first half.

Reguilon, called up from Tottenham, will join the Spain squad on Monday.

Defender Aymeric Laporte also had to be substituted against Georgia because of injury and is doubtful to face Kosovo on Wednesday.

Spain leads Group B with one point more than Sweden but the Swedes have two games in hand.
