Spain's Xavi may miss World Cup

Xavi has already played 60 games for club and country this season

Spain midfielder Xavi could miss the World Cup with a muscle injury.

The Barcelona star, 30, scored one goal and set up two in Saturday's 4-1 win at Villarreal but admitted afterwards that he has a 3cm tear above his calf.

"Xavi's playing with an injury that could see him miss the World Cup," said Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.

Xavi, whose side are battling with Real Madrid for the Spanish title, added: "I'm carrying a number of aches but the team has a lot on the line."

Barca are four points clear at the top of La Liga but Real have four games remaining to the Catalans' three.

He'll make it, definitely.

Love the passion towards Barca from him though. He'd rather secure their La Liga title than play in the World Cup in what is easily Spain's best ever chance to lift it.
