Ander Herrera hard at working in training with Spanish national squad

by Leo Nieboer

Ander Herrera has been pictured working hard for Spain ahead of the November international break.

Julen Lopetegui’s side will take on Macedonia in a World Cup qualifier on November 12 before travelling to London for a friendly with England on the 15th.

Herrea, following an injury to Bayern Munich’s Javi Martinez, received his first call-up to the national side last month.

The Spaniard, included once again following a string of strong performances with Manchester United, was pictured putting in the hard hards ahead of this weekend’s game with Macedonia.

The 27-year-old is currently embracing the zenith of his career at Man United. His has gone from a bit-part, relatively-usefel-but-not-exactly-special player to the side’s proverbial heartbeat. His energy, tenacity and commitment to the cause is underlined by a genuine devotion to the club.

Being a United player is far, far more than a pay-check foe Herrera, in similar fashion to the likes of Patrice Evra and Ashley Young. The number of players that truly understand the club has diminished throughout the post-Fergie era, but Herrera provides a powerful beacon of hope.

The Spaniard didn’t receive a chance to excel for the national side last month, but United fans will be keen to see Herrera make his long-awaited – long-overdue, I might add – international bow.
