finally, some La Roja news!

… well in a couple of hours, that is.

Today, Vicente del Bosque will reveal the list of players he will be taking to Liechtenstein on Sept. 3 for Euro 2012 qualifying, and to Argentina on Sept. 7 for a friendly.  With regards to the World Cup winning team, we should see the return of Andrés Iniesta and Pepe Reina, and the absences of Javi Martínez (who has returned to the U-21 team) and Raúl Albiol (out with a leg injury).  Fernando Torres should be called up, but it will be up to him to decide whether he will join or not.  If he decides to continue with his recovery, Santi Cazorla may be called up instead.

And speaking of the World Cup, Spain and Portugal are currently bidding to jointly host the 2018 or 2022 edition, with good friends, former teammates and former country captains Raúl and Figo as official ambassadors.  And to help their cause, they’ve also enlisted a number of other familiar faces.

  3. Having their faces posted next to each other like that is scary; are there ANY average/bad looking Spaniards out there?!

    • No, even the mediocre ones are 5X hotter than the rest of the world. I’m saving my pennies to go live in Barcelona!

  4. xavi is cool,… :)

  5. Not sure if this is the best place to ask this, but would anyone know the best/cheapest places to purchase Spain national team jerseys within Europe?
