Juan Mata, who scored his 16th goal of the season at Newcastle on Saturday, has filed his latest blog as he prepares for a trip to Qatar with his Spanish international team-mates.

Reflecting on defeat in the north-east, the number 10 also discusses an international call-up for Cesar Azpilicueta, and the promise of some warm weather in the Middle East.
