Pernia's ratio of goals provides Spain with another goal threat
Spain coach Luis Aragones has replaced injured left-back Asier del Horno with Mariano Pernia.

Chelsea's Del Horno had his World Cup hopes ended after he was ruled out for three weeks because of a tear to a tendon close to his left ankle.

Argentine-born Pernia, 29, recently moved from Getafe to Atletico Madrid and obtained dual Spanish nationality at the end of April.

Pernia was joint top scorer for Getafe with 10 goals in the Primera Liga.
