Three Madrid stars, Sergio Ramos, Carvajal and Isco have yet to join up with the Spain squad. National team coach Julen Lopetegui was keen to give them some time off and have them ready for the Macedonia game. Morata, Asensio and Nacho, who played bit-parts in the Juventus match in Cardiff are already in Murcia with the squad along with Piqué (who arrived late after attending his Harvard business masters course) and he will line up with Carvajal and Ramos in the qualifying game in Skopje.
Full strength Colombia
Spain face a Colombia who are expected to field a full-strength side and we should get to see the likes of James, Falcao and Cuadrado in action. The "Cafeteros" are second in the Comnebol Russia 2018 qualifying group and currently fifth inn the latest FIFA rankings (with Spain currently tenth). The stadium in Murcia will be packed with fans anxious to see the younger talents in action such as Marco Asensio, players that have injected fresh blood into the national team in an attempt to rebuild the side. Tonight's game is staged at an odd time of year but it's certainly set to be an intriguing contest.
