Scan shows Iniesta recovery on track

POTCHEFSTROOM - Andres Iniesta's bid to shake off a thigh injury in time for Spain's opening Group H match against Switzerland on Wednesday is on track, the Spanish soccer federation said on Monday.

"Regarding the injury to Andres Iniesta, he had a scan this morning which confirmed it is progressing well," the federation said on their website.

The Barcelona midfielder tweaked a thigh muscle in Tuesday's 6-0 win over Poland in a friendly international in Murcia and has mostly been training apart from the rest of the group at the European champions' base in Potchefstroom.

The squad have a final session later on Monday before flying to Durban for Wednesday's match.
