De la Red given green light

Rubén De la Red has been rewarded for his performances this season with Getafe CF, with a maiden call-up to the Spain squad for Wednesday’s friendly against Italy. The midfielder, who is on loan from Real Madrid, has been in fine form in helping Getafe march to the last eight of the UEFA Cup in their debut campaign in Europe as well as helping secure the club’s second Copa del Rey final appearance in successive seasons.

FC Barcelona forward Bojan Krkić will have to wait for his senior debut, however, having been selected for the Under-21’s match against Kazakhstan a day earlier.  Bojan was included in the squad for the France friendly but dropped out due to illness.
