Spain Plagued By Injuries
La Furia got together on Tuesday as they begin preparations for their upcoming World Cup qualifier matches against Estonia and Belgium. Valencia midfielder Raúl Albiol joins Barcelona’s Carles Puyol (foot infection) and Andrés Iniesta (knee), Villarreal’s Santi Cazorla (leg contusion), and Sevilla’s Diego Capel (hamstring) in the list of players that come into the international dates with injuries.
The biggest questions mark for Vicente Del Bosque is his midfield. Along with Iniesta, Capel, and Cazorla nicked up, the possibility of them playing is still likely, but Del Bosque will most likely lean towards having a midfield with Marcos Senna, Xavi,Fabregas, and Xabi Alonso in the midfield.
