Isco doubt for Madrid derby

Spain have confirmed that Isco will miss their friendly against Russia with a thigh injury, leaving him doubtful for the Madrid derby next weekend.

Isco was taken off in the second half of Spain’s 5-0 win against Costa Rica on Saturday, and a statement on the RFEF’s official website read how the midfielder left the national team’s camp “due to the knock he suffered yesterday.”

Furthermore, the 25-year-old has been referred to Real Madrid’s medical staff, who will now assess his ailment and whether he will be fit enough to face Atletico.

La Roja face Russia, the hosts of next summer’s World Cup, on Tuesday, while Madrid make the short trip to Wanda Metropolitano next Saturday.
