Valencia's Vicente has been ruled out of Spain's forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.Valencia star Vicente has been ruled out of Spain's forthcoming World Cup qualifiers through injury.
The Spain international strained his left ankle in the UEFA Champions League defeat at Werder Bremen on Wednesday night and will be sidelined for two weeks.
The night had begun well for the 23-year-old who put the visitors ahead in the first half.
However, things turned sour in the second period as Vicente picked up his injury, and the side conceded two goals to surrender victory.
The winger will now miss Valencia's league clash with Betis this weekend, as well as his country's forthcoming games with Belgium and Lithuania.
Valencia chief Claudio Ranieri is likely to turn to Xisco in place of Vicente, while Arsenal's Jose Antonio Reyes looks certain to benefit for Spain in his absence.
