Gudjohnsen given permission to miss Spain match

MADRID, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Iceland striker Eidur Gudjohnsen has been given permission to miss Tuesday's friendly against Spain in Reykjavik in order that he can play in the first leg of Barcelona's Spanish Super Cup tie against Espanyol.

Gudjohnsen will stay in Barcelona to prepare for Thursday's match against their city rivals, said the Spanish champions after holding talks with Iceland coach Eyjolfur Sverrisson on Monday.

The Super Cup will be Gudjohnsen's first official match with Barcelona since leaving Chelsea in June for a fee of 12 million euros.

Barca's Spanish internationals Xavi and Carles Puyol have withdrawn from the friendly in Reykjavik due to injury. It is not clear whether they will be ready to play for their club on Thursday.

Spain and Iceland are also Group F opponents in Euro 2008 qualifying.
