Fabregas back for Spain, but Bojan left out

MADRID, August 29 (National Team) - Fit-again midfielder Cesc Fabregas has returned to the Spain squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers, but Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic has missed out.

Arsenal ace Fabregas was absent from new Spain coach Vicente del Bosque's first squad selection due to injury, but he was included in a 20-man squad on Friday for the home double-header against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Armenia.

However, Bojan was one of three players to drop out of the 22-man party that travelled to Denmark for last week's friendly win, along with Fernando Amorebieta, Ruben De la Red and Marcos Senna.


Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Jose Reina (Liverpool); Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Juanito (Real Betis), Raul Albiol (Valencia), Andoni Iraola (Athletic Bilbao), Fernando Navarro (Sevilla) Joan Capdevila (Villarreal); Xabi Alonso (Liverpool), David Silva (Valencia), Xavi and Andres Iniesta (both Barcelona), Santi Cazorla and Marcos Senna (Villarreal), Diego Capel (Sevilla), Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal); Fernando Torres (Liverpool), David Villa (Valencia), Dani Guiza (Fenerbahce).

Does this mean Amorebieta, De la Red and Senna have been dropped as well? Senna is still on the squad list, but the other two are not. Is this reporter extremely confusing, or do I just need to improve my engrish?!?!

Man Utd 1-2 Zenit St Petersburg

Manchester United's bid for European Super Cup glory ended in failure as Pavel Pogrebnyak and Danny goals earned Zenit St Petersburg a deserved win.

Fresher and more incisive throughout, Zenit took the lead when Pogrebnyak forced home a header from close range.

Playmaker Danny made it 2-0 with a fine solo goal on the hour, before Nemanja Vidic pulled one back from six yards.

It was too little too late, though, with Paul Scholes sent off late on in a lacklustre showing from United.

The midfielder saw red when he punched the ball into the net with only seconds left on the clock, earning himself a second booking and one-match European suspension that could see him sit out the Champions League group match against Villarreal.

It was a sorry end to the match for United, who had looked off the pace throughout.

With Zenit midway through the Russian season, the difference in sharpness between the sides was clearly evident, and Dick Advocaat's side showed they could well be a threat in this season's Champions League - even without Andrei Arshavin, who has been heavily linked with Spurs and who only played 45 minutes in Monaco.

The defeat, though, will not be too hard to take for United, who not only had Cristiano Ronaldo watching from the stands, but who will also be hoping to add a striker - most notably Dimitar Berbatov - to their ranks before the close of the transfer window on Monday.

I wonder if Crispiano was pissed about Danny scoring against Man Utd or proud that someone else from his hometown was doing so well for himself.
