MADRID - Spanish national team coach Luis Aragonés said yesterday it was probable that 17-year old Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic would be called up for next week's friendly against France.

The coach admitted to being impressed by the young player's progress in his first season in Spain's first division, while also recognising that an appearance with Spain would prevent the player from being claimed by Serbia (Bojan has dual nationality). "He's only 17, but he has made extraordinary progress. He's got quality, an eye for goal and could be a great player," Aragonés told sports daily AS on Wednesday.
