SPAIN FOOTBALL TEAM 2010 | PREPARATION FOR UPCOMING EURO 2012 QUALIFIERS AGAINST LITHUANIA - SCOTLAND

The SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAM is under concentration with its 21 players in Madrid preparing themselves for the two important EURO 2012 group qualifiers. This Friday night they play Lithuania in the Spanish city of Salamanca & then the squad travels to Scotland to play in the city of Glasgow on Tuesday.


The SPAIN FOOTBALL TEAM has 4 new additions (Valero, Soriano, Aduriz & Pablo Hernandez) to the squad after regular & important players like Xavi Hernandez, Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas, Jesus Navas & Pedro had to withdraw due to injuries.

Selector & Coach Vicente Del Bosque is “redoing” his Football playing system in order to blend in the new members & adapt the Spanish Team to the “sticky” & difficult styles of both Lithuania & Scotland. The Spanish Sports press observing the training sessions have detected that Spain could revert back to a 4 – 4 - 2 system instead of the regular 4 – 2 – 3 -1 scheme & with FC Barcelona player Andres Iniesta doing the midfield role of Xavi Hernandez.

The observations have also given
possible hints of a starting 11 team with the only doubts being upfront on who will support David Villa. If yesterdays intense training session is a guide the “starting 11 against Lithuania” may look something like this:


Casillas, Ramos, Puyol, Pique, Capdevila, Busquets, Cazorla, Xabi Alonso, Andres Iniesta, David Villa & (Aduriz or Fernando Llorente)


In form Valencia CF player Pablo Hernandez has put some "pressure" on Coach Del Bosque with a great practice game performance last night with 2 goals, thus “shouting out” for a place in the initial eleven.

Casillas, Ramos, Puyol, Piqué Capdevila, Xabi Alonso, Busquets, Iniesta, Silva, Villa & Llorente.
