Del Bosque unfazed by injuries

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque admits he has a "slight concern" over his side's walking wounded heading into the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, but is optimistic they will be fit to start the tournament.

Players such as Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas missed the end of the English Premier League season through injuries while Barcelona midfielders Xavi and Andres Iniesta were also struggling with knocks towards the end of the Primera Division campaign. However, the potentially crucial quartet were included in Del Bosque's final 23-man squad for the trip to South Africa and the Spain boss is hopeful any injury concerns will have cleared up in time for the competition. Spain's first match in Group H is against Switzerland on16 June.
