Spain assistant coach Jose Antonio Grande admits Barcelona captain Carles Puyol will struggle to make their World Cup squad.

An injury-plagued season has meant the Spanish centre-back has made just four La Liga appearances for the defending champions.

"He hasn't been completely ruled out as there are three months left until the World Cup, but it's very hard for him," Grande told La Xarxa.

"Puyol needs to play more often and be more present in Barcelona's important games."
