SPANISH NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM LIST 23 PLAYERS FOR WORLD CUP 2014

Spanish National Football Team Selector & Coach Vicente Del Bosque has announced today the official & final list of 23 players that will make up the Spain Football Team squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil

The Real Madrid & Atletico de Madrid players are included & 7 names have been dropped from the 30 announced more than a week ago. Those eliminated include Jesus Navas, Moreno, Iturrespe, Carvajal, Delofeu...etc.

However, there could be a last minute modification. Spanish Football Team Selector Del Bosque will test Diego Costa - under a injury cloud - in the upcoming International Friendly game against El Salvador on the 7th of June to be played in the United States. If Diego Costa is not 100% Spain can call up a replacement as allowed by FIFA regulation. In this "extreme" case, a forward like Negredo or Fernando Llorente could be called up. Most believe however that Diego Costa will be OK by the time Spain plays El Salvador.

Final list of 23 players that make up the SPANISH NATIONAL FOOTBALL - SOCCER - TEAM:

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

- Defenders: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Gerard Pique y Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Javi Martinez (Bayern Múnich), Raul Albiol (Nápoles), Juanfran Torres (At.Madrid).

- Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernández Andrés Iniesta y Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona), Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Koke Resurrección (Atletico de Madrid), David Silva (Manchester City), Juan Mata (Manchester United), Santi Cazorla (Arsenal).

- Forwards: Pedro Rodriguez (Barcelona), Diego Costa & David Villa (At. Madrid), Fernando Torres (Chelsea).

There will be diverting opinions & many disappointments. I am surprised to see Mata, Torres & Villa in the final list, while I would have taken - personally - Isco , Jose Callejon & perhaps Fernando Llorente. However, I am not the Spanish Team Selector & trust the wise decision & Football experience of our World Cup & European Championship Coach.

Good luck boys!
