SPAIN NATIONAL TEAM LIST OF 30 PRELIMINARY PLAYERS | WORLD CUP 2014

Spanish Football National Selector & Coach Vicente Del Bosque has handed in a Preliminary list of 30 players for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The final definitive list of 23 players will be handed in on the 25th of May, day after both Spanish Football Clubs Real Madrid - Atletico de Madrid play the UEFA Champions League. There will be 7 eliminated & disappointed players but Coach Del Bosque has had to be careful because there could be injury in the Champions League Final to a Spanish international that would have caused problems.

Novelties are young Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal & Athletic Club Bilbao midfielder Iturraspe. Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea takes the spot of injured Victor Valdes, while there are notable absences (elimination) with Real Madrid & Spanish Team veteran Alvaro Arbeloa & surprisingly Real Madrid midfielder Isco not being included.


Spanish Football National Squad: Full Preliminary list of 30 players:

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Pepe Reina (Nápoles) & David de Gea (Manchester United).

Defenders: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Gerard Pique (Barcelona), Raúl Albiol (Napoles), Javier Martinez (Bayern de Múnich), Juanfran Torres (Atlético), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), César Azpiliciueta (Chelsea), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid) & Alberto Moreno (Sevilla).

Midfielders: Xavi Hernandez (Barcelona), Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Koke (Atletico), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Santi Cazorla (Arsenal), Ander Iturraspe (Athletic), Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona), Thiago Alcántara (Bayern de Munich), Juan Mata (Manchester United), David Silva (Manchester City), Pedro Rodríguez (Barcelona) & Jesús Navas (Manchester City).

Forwards: Diego Costa (Atletico), David Villa (Atlético), Fernando Torres (Chelsea), Álvaro Negredo (Manchester City) & Fernando Llorente (Juventus).

Who will be dropped from this list on the 25th May? Speculation is already on the way & they are surprises. Observers predict that barring last minute injuries names like David Villa, Fernando Torres, Iturrespe, Alberto Moreno, Raul Albiol & perhaps Negredo may be dumped. Remember no one knows expect Vicente del Bosque. Stay tuned!
