Villarreal international players are all back home

Some played, some didn't...

Maria José Segovia

Villarreal's international players have returned home.  The only injury worry I know of is Eric Bailly, who played in Ivory Coast's first match but not their second, held out of the match for injury reasons (perhaps precuation?) don't know.  Mateo Musacchio ought to be ready to return soon which would help for sure.

Denis Suarez played in both of the Spain U-21 matches, though only about 90 minutes in total; Nahuel not at all.  Jona dos Santos didn't play in either Mexico match--he just racked up frequent flier miles I guess.  Bojan Jokic probably played more than anyone, two full matches as Slovenia were eliminated by Ukraine in their Eurocopa qualification playoff.

And of course Mario Gaspar played and scored in the one match Spain did get in.

Lots of activities scheduled before the Eibar match on Sunday as "Endavant Provincia" welcomes Alcalà de Xivert, La Salzadella and Santa Magdalena de Pulpis, three small towns in the northeast of the Valencian Community near the Sierra d'Irta national park.
