Spain's World Cup qualifier against Belarus could be in doubt after a generator exploded at Mallorca's Iberostar Stadium where the game was due to take place on Friday.
According to reports in Spain, one of three generators at the stadium exploded after a severe electrical fault which left three people injured - two seriously - and the damage could be too extensive to repair in time for the Group I clash.
Both teams are expected to suspend their training sessions at the stadium, which is home to Primera Division side Real Mallorca, on Thursday evening.
The game against Belarus is scheduled to kick-off on Friday at 10pm local time.
Swansea forward Michu insists he does not feel hard done by not to have earned a call up from Spain before now and is focusing his efforts on enjoying his first time with Vicente del Bosque's record-breaking group and learning from the experience.
– Swansea forward Michu
I don't feel that it's been unfair for me not to have been with La Roja before. It's very difficult to get here. There are a lot of top-quality players in Spain who aren't here.
I don't know him that well, but the coach seems to me a fair person.
For any player, being in the national team is the best.
To wear the shirt of the Spain team is to wear the shirt of the best team in the world. It's a dream, every kid dreams of this and I feel privileged. It's my biggest achievement.
Swansea forward Michu is in dreamland after winning his first call-up to the Spain squad.
– Swansea forward Michu speaking to Cadena SER and Radio Marca
Every Spanish footballer dreams of this and it's so difficult. Few people can wear the shirt of the best team in the world.
There are a lot of players missing, but there are great players in the squad. Let's see if fortune is with me and I can play, although I'm already grateful to be called up.
It's the maximum to which a footballer can aspire. The national team is the best in the world, it's a privilege
I'm enjoying it like a kid, these are the best players in the world and it will be complicated, but I'll try to take advantage of the opportunity.

It looked as if Spain had snatched a dramatic late win when Jennifer Hermoso put them ahead five minutes before the final whistle, but England defender Laura Bassett swung her leg at Anita Asante's header from Rachel Yankey's corner three minutes later to level the game at 2-2.
However, Alexia Putellas ensured Spain had the final word in the last minute of stoppage-time when Adriana Martin's cross was fumbled by Bardsley under pressure from the substitute Spain striker.
