Rafael Benitez has urged both Spain and England to apply common sense with Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard when the international break gets underway next week.
The Reds duo have been struggling with injury of late and the boss is keen for the respective countries to be cautious when naming their squads. "I have spoken with the Spanish technical director, the fitness coach and (head coach) Vicente Del Bosque about Fernando," said Benitez. "I have explained the situation and they know he is not fit at this moment and he needs to work hard with the physios for a while. It's a similar situation with Steven. "When you have a player who has only been working with the physios and after there is an international break, it makes no sense to call these players when they are not fit. "At this moment, I think both will be in a difficult situation (physically) for the next two weeks and the Spanish know this."
