And a lil’more training…

During the second training in Las Rozas, Vicente del Bosque (who always seems to have football on the brain) did a trial run with his potential starters for the friendly against the U.S…

En el segundo entrenamiento de la selección española en La Ciudad del Fútbol, Vicente del Bosque (que siempre tiene el fútbol en la cabeza) realizó las primeras pruebas con un posible equipo para jugar el sábado el amistoso en Boston ante Estados Unidos.

The potential starters included Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Piqué, Joan Capdevilla, Bruno Soriano, Xabi Alonso, Santi Cazorla, David Silva, David Villa, and Álvaro Negredo…

It’s the same as always. The last time I was here it was wonderful and now it’s spectacular. – Álvaro Negredo

Es el mismo ambiente. Cuando me fui era maravilloso y ahora es espectacular. – Álvaro Negredo

Here is a cute summary of the day’s events brought to you by RTVE:

Vean este resumen lindo de los acontecimientos del día presentada por RTVE:

This is not what it looks like. The players are not sunbathing. On the contrary, they have been running around. And, of course, the ball, the protagonist, is always in the forefront of this team. The environment is great. Busquets fouls Ramos in the penalty area? No problem, because he helps him up and Villa scores the penalty.

Álvaro Negredo:  It’s the same as always. The last time I was here it was wonderful and now it’s spectacular.

The players who are here remember the one that wasn’t able to make it, Puyol, who today had surgery on his knee.

Bojan Krkić: Bueno, I talked to him and he’s doing fine.

Pedro: I hope that everything goes well and that he recovers soon, ojalá.

Someone who is traveling is the newbie, Manu del Moral:

Manu del Moral: For a footballer, this is the most amazing experience.

Several of the World Cup champions went to support the U-19 team. 

Nico de Vicente (RTVE): It wasn’t a holiday for the Spanish players, but it was definitely a holiday for those here in Las Rozas.

Casillas had a hard time taking two steps… Llorente, one of the tallest players in the team, was completely fenced in… And Iniesta? Iniesta, pobre, you could barely see him as he was surrounded by a seemingly never-ending wave of fans.
