Villa doubt for Liechtenstein

Spain have confirmed that David Villa is a doubt for Tuesday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein with a thigh strain.

A medical report released by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) explained Villa was taken to a Madrid hospital on Sunday morning for tests, which showed slight pulls in both of his adductor muscles.

However, the 36-year-old will stay with the Spain squad at their training camp, with his condition to be assessed over the next couple of days.

The New York City FC striker ended his three-year exile from La Roja with a late cameo during Saturday’s 3-0 win against Italy.
