[Selection] Rafinha plant in Spain to Brazil

Julen Lopetegui offered the list of players invited by the Under-19 pre-European contest in Italy on the category of 23 to 28 May and the main news was the absence of Rafinha, the Barça B playmaker in recent months had debated between going to do with Spain or Brazil. The ETF has waited long enough to make a decision, but this absence, coupled with the call to the Brazilian U-20 to contest the MIC (but ultimately Barça does not give permission), confirm that the desire is to play football with Brazil and thus give up Spain.

The coaches had warned at the time that this time is key to the interests of each other and leave out the hispanobrasileño means close the doors and go for other players. Since the ETF is believed to have made every effort to keep him and only playmaker has been in charge of changing his destiny. Spain will play the position in the pre-European to Belgium, Armenia and hosts Italy. Only the first qualifies for a date in which they will share the seats for the FIFA Under-20 Turkey in 2013, so that fall into this qualifying round also involve being outside the World Cup. This should do it now without Rafinha appreciated. (via AS)
