Vicente Del Bosque is not for experimenting, even when faced with two friendly games this month. The coach stuck to his tried and tested squad, only recalling Jesús Navas and Monreal for the double header against England and Costa Rica. Pedro and Negredo are both out injured, and Thiago drops back to the under 21 squad to help the youngsters in their bid to qualify for the European finals. Luis Milla's side face Estonia and Switzerland at home over the next few days, and with Canales out injured, the coach has also called up Thiago's on-form team mate Isaac Cuenca, as well as Canales's former understudy at Real Madrid, Getafe's Sarabia.
