New Liverpool winger Albert Riera has been called up to the Spain squad to replace the injured Diego Capel for the forthcoming World Cup Qualifiers next week.
The Spanish take on Estonia and Belgium, and Riera becomes the fifth Red to be called up to Vicente Del Bosque’s squad after Xabi Alonso, Alvaro Arbeloa, Pepe Reina and Fernando Torres were included earlier this week.
Reina has made an encouraging start to his Anfield career; with his opening 3 matches being Man United at home and Everton and Man City away! Rafa Benitez commented “People maybe don’t realise the situation and how well he’s playing. I could tell you he’s doing really well and leave it at that, but you also have to remember that since he’s been here the games have been United, Everton and Man City away. That makes how he’s doing even more impressive.”
