In the World Cup Qualifying UEFA, the teams Spain and Albania are facing against each other today.

With one game to play, the win put Iceland on 19 points, and on the brink of becoming the slammest team to qualify for the World Cup.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique was greeted with a mixture of jeers and applause on his 92nd worldwide appearance just days after voting in a referendum on Catalan independence deemed illegal by the Spanish government and blighted by police violence. "It would be my fourth World Cup and that fills me with pride".

"I only focus on playing football and I am sure it´d be better if everyone else did the same", Busquets said in a radio interview. "Sport is a good example".

"Pique's future with the Spanish flag is unacceptable", centre-right newspaper El Mundo complained on Saturday.

He is often booed when Spain plays outside of Catalonia.

A police officer in Panchkula, Haryana said they found out about the condition of the two arrestees during primary investigation. He had alleged that it was Honeypreet who disbursed Rs 1.25 crore for the supporters, ahead of the judgement.

But his Roja team-mates, notably Sergio Ramos, have long defended his commitment to the cause, with the Real Madrid defender saying earlier this week that the pair got on well despite their club rivalry.

Renewal A period of transition ensued in the wake of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and Lopetegui has now overseen its completion. Most of their players compete in the Champions League and play in Italy.

The likes of David de Gea, Koke, Isco, Thiago Alcantara and Alvaro Morata have filled gaps left by the departed Iker Casillas, Carles Puyol, Xavi and Xabi Alonso.

Rodrigo was denied a second by Berisha and Alba fired wide as Spain threatened to turn the contest into a rout, though Pique was fortunate not to see a defensive error on the stroke of half-time not result in a goal for Albania.

"It has been a hard, complicated week and fortunately we managed to do that in a very, very good first 30 minutes", Spanish coach was quoted as saying by Spanish TV channel Teledeporte. "Spain have licence to dream again", said Madrid-based sports daily Marca, who also declared the side "The czars of Russian Federation".
