SHAH ALAM, Malaysia (AP) — Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has injured his ankle and could pull out of the Spain squad for next week’s friendly match against Ecuador.

Fabregas was substituted eight minutes from the end of Saturday’s 3-1 friendly victory over Malaysia XI and Barcelona says he has sprained his right ankle and will undergo further tests.

The 26-year-old Fabregas, who has been pursued by Manchester United this summer, scored one goal and set up the other two in the match.
