The Spain squad training at Las Rozas.

The Spanish national side returned to training on Sunday after beating Belarus 2-1 in Mallorca on Friday.

Coach Vicente Del Bosque was without Álvaro Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos and Gerard Piqué, who all carried out individual recovery sessions in the gym.

The Barcelona centre-back suffered physical discomfort during the second half of the game with Belarus but was able to complete the 90 minutes, despite the fact Iñigo Martínez was sent out to warm up with a view to come on and replace him.

The rest of the internationals completed a full session on the Las Rozas training pitch, doing ball-work and pressing exercises before finishing off with a small-sided game.

Of the 11 players that started the game with Belarus, only Michu, Víctor Valdés and Nacho Monreal participated in the game, with Xavi, David Silva, Sergio Busquets, Pedro and Cesc Fábregas ending the session early to give themselves extra time to recover from the match.

On Monday morning La Roja will take the train from Madrid to Albacete, the location of their final World Cup qualifier, against Georgia.
