Why is there not a "de" after Spain? To me this translates to "I have 3 Spain friends"

I'm not completely sure but in cases like this where "Spanish friends" (西班牙[的]朋友) could be confused with "friend of Spain" (西班牙的朋友) then the attributive 的 is drop while the possessive 的 isn't.

It doesn't show the sound button to hear the phrase at the beginning of the exercise. It happens in every circle since the last actualization.
