Spain call up
Tenerife defender Salva Ruiz may not be getting all the action he hoped for when moving on loan to the island in the summer but he has not been forgotten by Spain’s Under-19 manager.

28.10.2013 - Ruiz could not fly back with his colleagues from the game at Huelva because he had to join up with the national squad for the UEFA tournament in Budapest, which kept him away from Tenerife for a full week until October 15.  The young full back is no stranger to international duty, having represented Spain at various levels to U-19, but admits he is finding it strange not to play week in, week out for his club.  “It is a pity I was not available for the key Majorca game but it was all for a good cause” said Ruiz, who was sent out on loan by Valencia to gain experience with Tenerife, rather than play in the reserves.
