Spanish international squads

With Puyol, Cesc and Pedro out injured, Del Bosque has recalled Iraola, Javi Martínez and Mata to the squad for the forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers. Spain will be playing the Czech Republic in Granada next Friday, and will then visit Belarus the following Tuesday. Meanwhile Luis Milla has called up two different squads for next week's under 21 friendlies, the younger group for Thursday's game against France in Paris expected to be the base for the 2011-13 campaign, and the older group for the home match against Belarus four days later warming up for this summer's European finals. Elsewhere an under 17 squad has been named for the Elite round of the European tournament which takes place in Belgium later this month, and an under 20 squad (based largely on the under 19s) has been called up for training in preparation for this summer's youth World Cup which will be played in Colombia next August.
