It was just last Thursday that del Bosque named the squad for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Lithuania and Scotland. But this weekend only brought bad news to the Spanish coach as three players named for the squad got injured or is still recovering from injuries.

Torres suffered a groin strain yesterday during the Liverpool vs Blackpool game while Pedro suffered a muscle strain in his left calf during Barcelona vs Mallorca. Navas who was out for two weeks after suffering a muscle injury is still recovering and said to be in a lot of pain. 

As for the other players who were left out of the squad Raul Albiol who was injured with an ankle injury was back to training with Real Madrid this week.

Do you know that …


1. Patricia Gonzalez was pregnant 3 months when she was married with David Villa.

2. Xabi Alonso important life events took place on a Wednesday

This is my little observation about Xabi Alosno, just a silly fact which might not have been noticed by Madridista or even other football fans.

He was born on Wednesday, he debuted in the national team on a Wednesday, Champions League final in Istanbul was on a Wednesday when he played for Liverpool, and in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday Jon, his son, was born. Also he signed for Real Madrid on a Wednesday and his debut for Real Sociedad was also on the same day. Baby Ane was also born in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday.

3. Christening should a happy and delight news, but several people who joins “Anti-Albelda” decided to boycotting Azahara’s baptism ceremony if Raul Albiol ask Albelda to be her godfather.

4. When Gerard Piqué was was 17 months, he fell from a balcony, and he was very badly injured.

Real Madrid vs Standard Liege


Xabi spent most of his time poking his eye.

I’m kidding, he was seen playing too.

we were able to get a closer look at Sergio’s new hair and it doesn’t look that bad.

I mean we’re talking about the boy who rocks pink blazers and green pants.

and the only picture of Raul I could find was from the teams arrival back at Madrid.

Albiol adds worry to Madrid’s injury-hit defense


Real Madrid’s defense has been hit by more injury problems after center back Raul Albiol hurt his ankle in a preseason game. Albiol severely sprained his left ankle in Madrid’s 1-1 draw at Standard Liege on Tuesday.

The centre-back suffered a “strong strain” on his right ankle, the club have state via their official website, and though the duration of the former Valencia player’s absence is not yet clear, it has been reported by AS that he will be missing for at least a week, putting his participation against Mallorca next weekend in doubt.
