Real Madrid captain Raul has hinted that he does not expect to feature on Spain´s list of 23 players heading to Euro 2008 this summer.

Raul has not figured in the plans of Spain coach Luis Aragones since a 3-2 loss to Northern Ireland in September 2006, during the qualifying campaign for the Austria and Switzerland tournament. Spanish fans and media have clamoured for his inclusion in the squad, which is due to be announced on Saturday, but Raul admits his thoughts at the moment have already turned to club matters next season.

"My primary objective is to rest and get ready for next season," he told Spanish newspaper El Pais.
