Veteran defender will reach the milestone in friendly with Uruguay.
World and European champions Spain take on Uruguay in a friendly in Doha, with La Roja defender Carlos Puyol set to win his 100th cap for his country.

fanatix tickets – El Clasico tickets are still available for the biggest derby match in Europe.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona tickets are on sale for this massive La Liga clash at the Bernabeu on March 3rd.
Iker Casillas, Andoni Zubizarreta, Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Raul and Fernando Torres have all passed the landmark.
Del Bosque said he was looking forward to the match with Uruguay because he believed the South American champions will provide his team with a real test.
Three players could make their debuts for Spain; Chelsea full-back Cesar Azpilicueta, Atletico Madrid midfielder Mario Suarez and Malaga midfielder Isco.
Del Bosque was criticised for not giving other players a chance, above all Swansea forward Michu, but he explained he had to view the match as “preparation” for Spain’s forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Finland and France next month.
He also defended the decision to play the match in Qatar rather than in Spain or Uruguay.
Spain will be without captain Iker Casillas, who is still recovering from a fractured hand, plus Xavi and Xabi Alonso, who were both named in the squad, but had to pull out due to picking up injuries while playing for their club’s last weekend.
