The Right Attitude!
The surprising exclusion, from the Spanish squad, of Juan Mata has prompted the kind of response from Juan that you would expect.
Mata, since being given a two week rest, has been in sublime form and we can only surmise that Spain`s loss is our gain, but returning to the point about missing the World Cup qualifiers against Belarus and France, Mata has commented,
"I was excited about these games and confident I would make the squad."
"I`ve not spoken to the manager. The only thing I can do is keep playing well in order for him to pick me."
As he surely will, meanwhile put your feet up this weekend and further re-charge those batteries as we attempt to make a transition season something of a special one.
