The Real Madrid midfielder, who has been in fine form for his club in recent weeks, did not train with the world and European champions on Wednesday before they fly to the Finnish capital, the RFEF said on the national team's website.

"Tests will be conducted at the CEMTRO clinic (in Madrid) to assess the extent of the problem," they added.

Spain top qualification Group I by a point from France after five of eight matches.
