Spain's players have arrived at training after being forced to join up with the national team or face potential bans.
The team are due to play their first matches since winning the World Cup in the summer when they face Sweden and Switzerland in the Nations League on September 22 and 26 respectively.
Their success at the tournament has been majorly overshadowed, however, with former Spanish FA president Julien Rubiales kissing star striker Jenni Hermoso on the lips during the post-match presentation after the final.
Rubiales' actioned triggered outrage, and he is now facing charges of sexual assault and coercionfollowing the incident.
Several of Spain's squad had made it clear they did not want to represent their country for the foreseeable future, but they have now met up as a squad with a potential ban having loomed.
New manager Montse Tome named her squad for the fixtures on Monday which included 15 World Cup winners, but the team have since reaffirmed their intention to go on strike.
