MADRID (AP) Spain defender Dani Carvajal missed the team's training session on Wednesday because of flu, while reserve goalkeeper Pepe Reina was dropped from the squad after picking up a muscle injury.
The Spanish soccer federation said Carvajal did not train as a ''precaution'' ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Israel on Friday.
Reina had missed a practice session on Tuesday and on Wednesday doctors concluded that he would not be fit in time for the team's upcoming matches.
Spain plays a friendly against France in Saint-Denis, four days after the home game against Israel in Gijon.
Spain and Italy lead Group G of European qualifying with 10 points each after four matches. Israel is third with nine points.
