Valencia strikers David Villa and Mista along with Arsenal’s Jose Antonio Reyes have been recalled to Luis Aragones’s squad for Spain’s crucial World Cup qualifiers later this month.

Second in Group Seven, Spain travel to Belgium on October 8 and San Marino on October 12.

Even if they win both their games, Spain still need the Serbia and Montenegro to slip up against either Lithuania or Bosnia if they are to avoid the play-offs.
