Getafe midfielder Ruben de la Red has been named in the Spain squad for Wednesday´s international friendly against Italy in Elche.

The uncapped 22-year-old has been earning rave reviews at Getafe since switching from Real Madrid last summer, and has helped Michael Laudrup´s team reach the final of the Copa del Rey and the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.

De la Red is the only new face in Luis Aragones´ 22-man squad, but midfielder David Albelda, who has been frozen out at Valencia since before Christmas, has been omitted.
