Spain Plagued By Injuries

2rfef 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.

Goalkeepers:

Íker Casillas (Real Madrid)
José Manuel Reina (Liverpool, Inglaterra)

Defenders: Raúl Albiol (Valencia), Álvaro Arbeloa (Liverpool, ENG), Joan Capdevilla (Villarreal)
Juanito (Real Betis), Carlos Marchena (Valencia), Fernando Navarro (Sevilla), Carles Puyol (Barcelona)
Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)

Midfielders: Xabi Alonso (Liverpool, ENG), Diego Capel (Sevilla), Santi Cazorla (Villarreal), Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal, ENG), Xavi (Barcelona), Andrés Iniesta (Barcelona), Andoni Iraola (Athletic Bilbao)
Marcos Senna (Villarreal)

Forwards: Dani Güiza (Fenerbahce, TUR), Fernando Torres (Liverpool, ENG), David Villa (Valencia)

    All in all Spain should be fine. If someone has a strain or knock, VDV should leave them on the bench. They can always call up more players to face Belgium.
