By Tim Hanlon BARCELONA (Reuters) - Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been left out of Vicente del Bosque’s Spain squad for this month's matches with Belarusand Germany to help him recover from his recent injuries. “I have spoken to our doctors and those of Chelsea and I have decided to leave him out due to the situation with his pubis (pelvis),” Del Bosque told a news conference. “He may be able to play (in) Chelsea’s next game against Liverpool (on Saturday) but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have some type of injury problem.” Del Bosque has also looked to freshen up the team following their disappointing early exit at this year's Brazil World Cup and continued that trend by calling up Jose Callejon, Alvaro Morata, Nolito and Ignacio Camacho for the first time. European champions Spain have made a stuttering start to their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign and are second in Group C with six points from three games behind Slovakia on nine. They host Belarus in their next qualifier on Nov. 15 before welcoming Germany for a friendly three days later. Costa was called up for the matches against Slovakia and Luxembourg last month which led to a row with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho who felt the Brazilian-born striker needed rest after suffering groin and hamstring injuries. Costa missed the following four matches for Chelsea and, while he is now back playing for the Premier League side, Del Bosque has decided to give him a break. Callejon is top scorer in Serie A with eight goals for Napoli while Morata has taken his limited chances at Juventus well and is pushing for a starting place with Fernando Llorente, another contender for a place in the Spain squad. Nolito’s quality on the ball has helped Celta Vigo make a strong start to the season in La Liga where they stand sixth and Camacho has been impressive in a defensive role for Malaga. “We need players with ability who can open up the pitch and can score goals. We need to take advantage of the good form that they are in,” said Del Bosque. “Camacho has proved himself at youth level and was champion at U-17 (2007 European Championship) and U-21 (2013 Euros). He is 24 and reflects how well Malaga are playing.”
