Spain captain Raul Gonzalez hurt his right toe in practice Friday

The Real Madrid forward "hit the ball bad" in one of the training exercises, but was not seriously injured, team doctor Genaro Borras said.

Borras said Raul had some pain in his "first toe," without saying exactly which toe.

Moments earlier, Raul had walked off the field, carrying his soccer shoes, with no obvious signs of injury.

Now in his third World Cup, Raul is the Spain's all-time leading scorer. He saw a seven-month scoring drought end this year with a goal in the Spain's penultimate warmup against Egypt.
