Cesc likely to play against Colombia in next week's friendly match

Spanish Coach Vicente del Bosque announced his squad to use against Colombia on Wednesday. The complete Spanish rooster for this game includes Casillas, Valdes, Reina (Goalkeepers) Albiol, Capdevila, Arbeloa, Marchena, Piqué and Sergio Ramos (defenders), Santi Cazorla, Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fábregas, Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernández and the popular Andrés Iniesta (midfielders), Silva, Llorente, Navas, Pedro, Torres and Villa (Strikers).

The coach suggested that most players will have the chance to play against the South American team. As we know, FIFA allows only 6 substitutions in friendly games, but Cesc Fabregas is having a very good season at Arsenal and is very likely to be part of the starting team.

Spain will miss Carles Puyol. The strong defender is suffering physical problems and cannot be part of the team.

The match, which will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, is the first one for the World Champions in 2011.
