The Spanish National selector has left out deliberately players from FC Barcelona, Athletic Club Bilbao & Chelsea FC, which have Spanish Cup Final & Champions League Final duties. Although this fact fills today's given list with new faces it is to be expected that the "missing" names will be called up in the FINAL & definite list of players for the EURO 2012 tournament which will be handed in on the 27 th of May.
Del Bosque has taken the opportunity to reward a hand full of players for their outstanding LIGA performance this season & to keep the National side guaranteed with "fresh blood" for the future.
|Vicente del Bosque|
This is the full list of 21 players:
Goalkeepers: Casillas, Reina & De Gea.
Defenders: Albiol, Jordi Alba, Arbeloa, Domínguez, Monreal, Sergio Ramos & Juanfran
Midfielders: Isco, Xabi Alonso, Cazorla, Beñat, Javi García, Bruno Soriano.
Forwards: Adrián , David Silva, Jesús Navas, Negredo & Soldado.
Novelties are: De Gea (Man Utd.), Dominguez (At Madrid), Juanfran (At.Madrid), Isco (Malaga FC), Beñat (Real Betis), Javi Garcia (Benfica), Soriano (Villareal) & Adrian (At Madrid)
Many of the novelties will be discarded with the definite & final list on the 27th of May. However, players like Adrain, Dominguez, Isco, De Gea ...etc will ( if not called into final senior list ) go into the Spanish Olympic Football Team squad.
