Carles Puyol’s still happy to fight for Spain

Spain defender Carles Puyol has confirmed he will continue to play international football for two more years, helping La Roja defend their European title.

Reports last month claimed the centre-back was ready to quit the international stage.

However, Puyol said: “After turning the matter over in my mind a lot I have decided to continue for two more years with the national team, after talking to my team-mates, the coach, Fernando Hierro and friends I opted to take this decision.”
