Spanish international squads

Getafe's Manu del Moral was the surprise call up for the Spanish squad to face USA and Venezuela in friendly internationals at the start of next month. Manu got the nod ahead of Valencia's on-form striker Soldado, and Sevilla's Negredo is also back in the squad. Xavi has been rested though at Barcelona's request, and Cesc Fábregas is still injured, and Villarreal's Bruno and Borja Valero have therefore been recalled. Under 21 and under 19 squads were also named this week ahead of their European commitments. (25.05.11)
