Diary

Thursday, 11 November 2004 - Luis Aragonés announced his 18-man squad today to face England next Wednesday in Madrid.  Aragonés has called up José Maria Gutiérrez and Valencia striker Miguel Angulo to his squad for the first time whilst Real Madrid defender Iván Helguera returns to the international scene.  Two English players make it into the Spanish squad - José Antonio Reyes of Arsenal, and Xabi Alonso of Liverpool, both of whom have enjoyed good starts to the season.  Valencia midfielder David Albelda has been ruled out for a month with a thigh injury and Fernando Morientes is doubtful with a twisted ankle.

Monday, 15 November 2004 - Spain duo Carles Puyol and Iván Helguera have dropped out of the squad.  Barcelona's Puyol has withdrawn with a twisted knee ligament in his left leg, while Real Madrid's Iván Helguera also has a knee injury that he sustained in the 6-1 thrashing of Albacete on Sunday night.  Betis' Juanito and Pablo Orbáiz of Athletic Bilbao have been called up.

Tuesday, 16 November 2004 - Spain's José Reyes has warned Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville to go easy on him.  Arsenal's Reyes was critical of the Manchester United duo's behaviour in the recent Premiership game.  "They were filthy in the United game and if there was kicking going on in another game it would be very suspicious. I hope Ferdinand and Neville have forgotten the Arsenal game and don't kick me as much as in Manchester. The England game won't be very friendly and it won't be easy.  The England defenders are experienced and their attack will give us a lot of work to do.  But our manager knows the best way to play the game against England.  And let us make one thing clear: Spain wants to win this match."
