Spain starts training for World Cup clash vs Iran without Reina
Krasnodar (Russia), June 18: Spain’s national football team has resumed training after a few hours of rest with an eye on their next 2018 FIFA World Cup clash with Iran, albeit without goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who is struggling with neck discomfort.
Following the thrilling 3-3 draw against Portugal on Friday, only the substitute players took part in Saturday’s morning session, reports Efe.
The entire squad started to train on Sunday, preparing for their second Group B clash, against Iran, which snatched a 1-0 win over Morocco to top the group.
Only Reina missed training, as he withdrew from the field after a talk with the coaching staff at the beginning of the session.
Dani Carvajal, meanwhile, continued to train with the team, as he has been doing since Tuesday after recovering from a muscle injury he has been struggling with, but he did not take part in Friday’s game against Portugal.
Nevertheless, he seems to be ready for the Iran clash, scheduled for Wednesday.
