MADRID, March 23 (Xinhua) -- Sevilla winger Bryan Gil has dropped out of the Spain squad for the forthcoming Euro 2024 qualifying matches against Norway and Scotland, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) confirmed on Thursday.

Gil, who is on loan at Sevilla from Tottenham Hotspur, suffered "muscle problems" in training and will return to his club "as a precaution," the RFEF informed, adding that coach Luis de la Fuente will not call a replacement in the squad.

The winger is the third player to drop out of the squad De la Fuente named last Friday, with Barcelona midfielder Pedri failing to recover from an issue that has sidelined him for around a month, while Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno suffered a calf injury in his side's 3-0 win away to Osasuna last Sunday.

Betis forward Borja Iglesias and Villarreal winger Yeremy Pino were named as replacements for Pedri and Moreno.

Norway will be without Manchester City forward Erling Haaland for Saturday's game, which will be played in Malaga's La Rosaleda Stadium.
