While Alvaro Morata is away on international duty with Spain, the Chelsea striker has left his significant other at home in London.
Morata was on target for Spain during their 3-0 win against Italy on Saturday night after coming on as a 72nd minute substitute and put his case forward for a starting berth in Liechtenstein on Tuesday.
But while Morata is away with the national side, trying to book their place at next year’s World Cup in Russia, he has left his wife Alice Campello behind in the unfamiliar surroundings of the English capital following their move from Madrid.
I miss you too much,’ Campello said as she took to Instagram to post a sentimental message accompanied by photos of the pair.
‘Even in my best dreams I could have imagined having a better husband than you.’
Morata tied the knot with Campello, a 22-year-old Italian fashion designer and model, in June this year before his move to England.
And both Campello, and his new boss Antonio Conte, will hope the 24-year-old returns unscathed following his duty with the national squad.
Chelsea return to Premier League action against Leicester on Saturday and Morata will hope to continue his goalscoring form after touching down in the English capital.

Chelsea transfer news: Pat Nevin lauds Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta deals
Chelsea had a difficult transfer window, missing out on a number of big-name signings to rival clubs.
Romelu Lukaku opted for Manchester United, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool and Ross Barkley changed his mind on a move at the eleventh hour.
However, despite these disappointments the Blues still got a number of deals over the line, including Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta on deadline day.
And Pat Nevin thinks these two late additions to the squad were absolutely essential if Chelsea are to have a strong season.
“There was some concern from fans as the window closed at 11pm on Thursday,” Nevin wrote in his Chelsea column.
“Especially as I sat on the sofa at Chelsea TV pretty convinced that we had Danny Drinkwater but it couldn’t be announced until all the loose ends were neatly tied up.
“I felt we absolutely needed to get that one over the line along with the Zappacosta deal to give us options.”
And Nevin thinks unknown quantity Zappacosta could prove to be a shrewd signing, much like Marcos Alonso last season.
“So in come Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger, Danny Drinkwater, Alvaro Morata and Davide Zappacosta, while Willy Caballero is back-up to Thibaut Courtois,” he added.
“The first four names are clearly ones who can and will be considered as regular starters at various points.
“Zappacosta may well make that five as his recruitment reminds me of the reaction to Alonso’s 12 months ago.
“So that is arguably five outfield players that can come straight into the team if needed. Half a team and quite a huge addition to a side that has just won the title.”
