Diary

Friday, 23 February 2001 - Spain coach Jose Antonio Camacho announces an eighteen-man squad on Friday for the friendly match against England at Villa Park on Wednesday. The Spanish first division's top scorer Javi Moreno of Alaves and young defender Unai Bergara of Villarreal were named in Spain's squad for the first time Moreno has impressed this season, notching 16 league goals for the modest Basque side who reached the last eight of the UEFA Cup with a 2-0 over Italian giants Inter Milan on Thursday. Barcelona playmaker Pep Guardiola returns to midfield after recovering from injury, while the in-form Victor of Deportivo Coruna gets a recall along with his team mate Enrique Romero. Real Oviedo keeper Esteban has been displaced by Valencia's Santiago Canizares who will line up alongside Real Madrid's Iker Casillas. Canizares has been instrumental in Valencia's miserly defence that conceded only 16 league goals this season. Up front, Camacho has kept faith with the Athletic Bilbao pairing of Ismael Urzaiz and Joseba Etxeberria who will join the ever-present Raul and debutant Moreno. Celta Vigo's Brazilian-born striker Catanha, who has been in inconsistent form, and Real Madrid pair Pedro Munitis and Guti, who have been unable to hold down places in their side, are among eight players left out of the squad from Spain's 2-1 defeat in a friendly last November against the Netherlands.

Monday, 26 February 2001 - Captain Fernando Hierro was withdrawn from the squad after FIFA told the Spanish FA that he had to serve a one-game ban for his sending-off in Spain's last game, against Netherlands in November. Paco, of Real Zaragoza has replaced him.
