Some Pain for Spain

The nation of Spain and FC Barcelona got some bad news today. Midfielder Xavi Hernandez (pictured) was injured during a team practice and will be out for six months. Xavi tour knee ligaments during training on Friday when he collided with a teammate. This is a big lose for Barcelona as Xavi served many good balls to Ronaldinho. They had been on a great roll that took them to first place, but this could greatly disrupt their success. This might allow Real, if they can deal with their own injury issues, and a few other clubs a chance to move up.

For Spain, they will now need to find someone to control their middle. If they want to reverse their habit of underperforming in World Cups, they will need to figure out this issue fast.
