Alonso leg strain hits Spain camp

May 30, 2006

Spain's World Cup preparations have been hit by an injury scare involving key midfielder Xabi Alonso.

The Liverpool star was forced to abandon training today with a leg strain and is awaiting news on the injury, which forced him to miss a six-a-side game.

Chelsea full-backs Asier del Horno and Real Madrid's Michel Salgado were the other players unable to train.

Del Horno underwent tests on a calf injury this morning in Valencia and the results will be crucial in determining whether he will be able to travel to Germany.
