Barca pair in Kiev for Spain

Carles Puyol and David Villa are in Kiev as Spain make final preparations ahead of Sunday's Euro 2012 final. 

 The Barcelona players, both unable to take part in the tournament because of injuries, headed to Ukraine to show support to their team-mates as they get ready to take on Italy. 

 Victory will ensure an historical treble - winning two Euros consecutively with a World Cup in between. 

We are delighted with the arrival of Puyol and Villa," Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque told Marca on Saturday. 

We are trying to make this squad a proper team. It is very positive to see them join us and we appreciate it. 

Despite being on vacation, they came and I am sure their presence will give some additional encouragement to all of us. 

Villa, 30, is Spain's all-time goalscorer and had to sit out of Euro 2012 after breaking his leg in the Club World Cup in December of last year, while Puyol, 34, suffered a knee injury playing for Barcelona.
