Caldwell Aims For Spain Game

Last updated : 23 July 2010 By Ed_ScottishFitba

Gary Caldwell 2Scotland will start their opening games in their EURO2010 qualifying campaign without Gary Caldwell as he is still recovering from surgery on both hips over the summer. He remains hopeful to be able to be considered for inclusion in Craig Levin's side which will line up against world champions Spain in October. The Wigan defender has not set a target date to return to action but but is confident of beingready before Vicente Del Bosque's men visit Hampden Park on 12 October.

Caldwell said: "It is just a case of taking each day as it comes and making sure I am ready when I come back. I don't think I'll make the first couple - I'll be struggling - but hopefully the Spain and Czech Republic games. I'll be doing my very best to get in the Wigan team first and hopefully back in the Scotland team. The surgeon didn't want to give dates. He said he's had people back in ten weeks to five months, so somewhere in amongst that."
