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.
