Sergio Ramos wasn’t called up for the game against Racing as he’s still recovering from injuries sustained in the Spain-Scotland game. This means that he’ll accompany Iker to Oviedo today!
This brings the total number of players to 10 – not bad, considering we started with four!
The players that will be in Oviedo this evening are: Iker, Sergio, Llorente, Javi, Mata, Navas, Pepe, Xavi, Marchena and Capdevila. Yay!
UPDATE: SERGIO JUST TWEETED!
It was one long tweet, divided into three parts (guess Sergio doesn’t know about this). The tweet says, “Friends: I want to congratulate everyone for the Príncipe de Asturias award that the national team will receive this afternoon. It’s an award for everyone, the fans, for all of Spain, who knew how to support us and encourage us. I’m sure that we (the team) alone wouldn’t have been able to be champions of the world. Enjoy it, like I’m also thinking of doing. A big hug for everyone.”
