SPAIN FOOTBALL TEAM PLAYERS | WORLD CUP 2010 | XABI ALONSO GIVES A SCARE

The SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAM is busy training & preparing themselves for their opening game of Group H against Switzerland next Wednesday. The SPAIN WORLD CUP TEAM is based in the South African town of Potchefstroom & in their training session of today gave us all a slight scare when XABI ALONSO retired from training half way through the session.

Spain has currently "under care" another vital piece of the playing team ANDRES INIESTA with a thigh muscle strain & the image of the Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso walking off sent alarm – bells throughout the Spanish Camp. Lastest news tells us that it is just an overworked & tired leg muscle & that Xabi left the training session for purely precautionary reasons. It was all just a scare & the midfielder should be back training soon.

Lets not forget that many of the SPANISH SOCCER WORLD CUP TEAM players come into the World Cup competition after a long season were most have played more than 70 – 80 games up to this point. Without rest, it is not surprising that muscle strains & tiredness are affecting some players at this stage.

Lastly, as a further piece of news, Spanish midfielder DAVID SILVA in a press conference warned against “over-confidence” & called for a “feet on the ground approach” as media are heating things up placing the SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAM as the hot favourites. Spanish International Silva wishes to dampen the atmosphere as the “favourite” tag could be more counter-productive than an advantage.
