SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAM LIST | FINAL 23 PLAYERS FOR EURO 2012

SPANISH NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM Coach & Selector Vicente Del Bosque has handed in his final list of 23 players that will make up the 2012 EUROPEAN NATIONS CUP squad.


The National Selector had to make some harsh & difficult decisions as he incorporated the absent FC Barcelona & Athletic Club Bilbao Internationals which obviously could only come into the squad with departures. Some of the youngsters like De Gea & Isco returned home to incorporate themselves in the Spanish U-21 squad, but others will directly begin their holidays & watch the Euro 2012 competition at home.

The big surprise was the NO inclusion of ADRIAN who starred yesterday against Serbia,  & the absences of Roberto Soldado, both will be bitterly disappointed. In their place Del Bosque called up PEDRO ( FC Barcelona ) who put in a "blinder" in the Spanish Cup Final with two goals, plus FERNANDO TORRES remains which - in my case - baffles me as his season as been weak & is substitute with Chelsea FC.

The new "kid" in the squad is JUANFRAN ( Atletico de Madrid) who comes in after Iroala ( At.Bilbao) has a injury cloud over him which caused doubts. CESC FABREGAS is called up as well even though he is injured but with doctors optimistic of a speedy recovery.

Having said this, the decision of Del Bosque has to be respected & he not be saved from
 criticism as it is the "Spanish Sport" to criticise & remember today's decisions tomorrow if things go badly. It is clear that Del Bosque has put importance in the GROUP over individual talents & places faith in players that contributed to win European & World Cup titles.
