New Straits Times - - Sport -

MADRID: Spain de­fender Dani Car­va­jal missed the team’s train­ing ses­sion on Wednesday be­cause of flu, while re­serve goal­keeper Pepe Reina was dropped from the squad af­ter pick­ing up a mus­cle in­jury.

The Span­ish foot­ball fed­er­a­tion said Car­va­jal did not train as a “pre­cau­tion” ahead of the World Cup qual­i­fier against Is­rael today.

Reina had missed a prac­tice ses­sion on Tues­day and on Wednesday doc­tors con­cluded that he would not be fit in time for the team’s up­com­ing matches.

Spain play a friendly against France in Saint-De­nis, four days af­ter the home game against Is­rael in Gi­jon.
