Eleven players took part in Thursday morning’s training session, including five players–Fali, Rueda, Urbano, Álex Ruiz and De la Puente – from the B team.

Senior squad players Valdés, Pinto, Gudjohnsen, Bojan, Oleguer and Ezquerro plus the B team youngsters were put through their paces by Eusebio and Juan Carlos Unzué. Lionel Messi has already joined up with Argentina squad ahead of Saturday’s friendly in the Camp Nou against Catalonia.

Márquez is suffering from tendonitis and exercised in the gym while Iniesta and Puyol, who will shortly join up with the Spain squad to prepare for EURO 2008, were at the Camp Nou but did not take part in the training session. Finally, Samuel Eto'o has already flown off to Cameroon on international duty.

The group then divided into two teams for a training match: Pinto, Eusebio, Albert Roca, Fali, Gudjohnsen, Bojan and De la Puente (blue bibs) and Álex Ruiz, Urbano, Oleguer, Valdés, Unzué and Ezquerro (orange bibs).
