Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia and Arsenal striker Jose Antonio Reyes have been recalled to the Spain squad for a friendly against China and the World Cup qualifier against Serbia & Montenegro.

Coach Luis Aragones also named Deportivo Coruna forward Juan Carlos Valeron in his 22-man squad.

Four new faces have been introduced with defenders Sergio Ramos and David Navarro, midfielder Antonio Lopez and striker Mista all earning a first call-up.

Spain have the same number of points as Lithiania albeit with a superior goal difference.

“If we win it will be a great psychological blow for us. But if we only draw or lose, all is not lost. It does not mean we have not qualified,” said Aragones.

“Our rivals are a similar standard to us. We will have to work very hard because it will not be a good surface to play on and they have a very strong defence that has yet to concede a goal.”

Aragones defended the selection of his captain Raul, who has come in for criticism over his performances for Real Madrid this season.

“Raul is an important player for this side just like other experienced players in the squad. Great players always rise to the occasion when it counts and can provide psychological support to the other players in the side,” he added.

Spain squad:
Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Santiago Canizares (Valencia)

Defenders: Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Carlos Marchena (Valencia), Sergio Ramos (Sevilla), Asier del Horno (Athletic Bilbao), Pablo Ibanez (Atletico Madrid), Juanito (Real Betis), David Navarro (Valencia)
