However today we all received some bad news as FC BARCELONA & Spanish International defender CARLES PUYOL announced that he will be submitted to a knee intervention in the coming days that will sideline him for the following 6 - 7 weeks.
This means that he basically will miss the upcoming Euro 2012 Championship. A big blow to the Spanish National Football Team as it loses one of the Best defenders in European Football, with all the experience & leadership qualities that would have helped so much SPAIN attempt the maintain the European Nations crown.
The natural substitute is Real Madrid player SERGIO RAMOS along with another possibility in JAVI MARTINEZ of Athletic Club Bilbao.
From here we wish Puyol a speedy recovery.
