The FC Barcelona players picked by Vicente del Bosque arrived in Las Rozas on Monday morning to start preparing for the South African World Cup.

Most of the players spent the weekend regaining strength after the League title celebrations, but now it’s back to work for them in a very different environment. They are with the Spain squad that will be playing in the World Cup in June and July.

Villa and his new colleagues

Víctor Valdés, Carles Puyol, Gerard Piqué, Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Pedro Rodríguez and David Villa are all now under the orders of Vicente del Bosque. It has given the FCB representatives their first chance to exchange words with new team-mate David Villa, who was added to Guardiola’s squad last week.

Three pre-World Cup friendlies

Before the tournament starts, Spain have three warm-up matches against Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Poland. They will not actually fly out to South Africa until June 10.
