Joaquin: Spain is a joke

Joaquin told Punto Radio: “At the moment the national team is a joke, it’s in chaos and not even Luis (Aragones) knows which way to turn.

“I know what I’m saying won’t help me get back into the squad but it’s what I feel. All that is left to me is to work hard to try and regain the confidence of the coach.”

Spain coach Luis Aragones has also dropped Real Madrid striker Raul from the squad that will take on Sweden. That is the first time in ten years for Raul.
