Cesc Fabregas will miss Spain's final Euro 2012 warm-up match against China but he is making good progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury.
The Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) said on Friday that a scan on the problem had shown 'very satisfactory results'.
Fabregas picked up the injury when he came on for the last 10 minutes of Barca's 3-0 Copa del Rey final win over Athletic Bilbao last week before he was named in Spain's final 23-man squad to defend their title in Poland and Ukraine next month.
"Medical tests have been successful, very happy with the evolution," Fabregas wrote on his Twitter feed.
RFEF stated on their official website that the former Arsenal captain would train away from the rest of the team as he bids to regain fitness in time for Spain's opening Group C match against Italy on June 10th.
Fabregas and his Barca team-mates Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique, Pedro and Victor Valdes, as well as Bilbao pair Fernando Llorente and Javi Martinez, joined up with the squad at Spain's training base outside Madrid on Friday.
