Visit from Puyol and Villa

The players were also joined today by the injured Carles Puyol and David Villa. Both FC Barcelona stars are regular members of the Spain squad, but will miss this June\u2019s tournament through injury.

The last friendly will be on Sunday against China at La Cartuja in Seville, and after that the Spanish team will be flying to Poland, where their first match of the tournament is against Italy on June 10th.
