Spain coach Luis Aragones on Friday recalled defensive trio Mariano Pernia, Pablo Ibanez and Juanito for next week´s international friendly against Greece.

The three men have been included for the clash in Thessaloniki as cover for the absent Carles Puyol, Javi Navarro and Joan Capdevila, all of whom are injured.

The selection of Argentina-born Pernia will raise the most eyebrows as he has not played for Spain since last September.
