Puyol a likely starter for his 100th match for Spain

Del Bosque gave few clues about his team before the friendly against Uruguay in Qatar, but the probable defence is Arbeloa, Puyol, Piqué and Monreal.

Spain trained in the Khalifa stadium in Doha today, but Del Bosque gave few clues as to his eventual line-up for the Uruguay match tomorrow at 7pm, Spain time. The Spanish coach mixed the players up for the training session, though indications were that he did try out what will be the eventual starting defence tomorrow: Arbeloa, Puyol, Piqué and Monreal. If this is the case then Puyol will earn his 100th cap in the starting line up. Together with that defence in the practice match were: Valdés (the probable starting keeper for tomorrow), Mario Suárez, Isco, Silva, Villa and Negredo. They faced: Reina; Azpilicueta, Ramos, Jordi Alba; Busquets; Pedro, Cazorla, Mata, Iniesta; y Cesc. The last six look likely to start tomorrow.
