    Provisional Spanish Squad

    Provisional 27-man Spain squad for the World Cup:

    Casillas (Real Madrid), Reina (Liverpool), Canizares (Valencia); Capdevila (Deportivo La Coruna), Puyol (Barcelona), Salgado, Ramos (both Real Madrid), Marchena (Valencia), Del Horno (Chelsea), Lopez, Ibanez (both Atletico Madrid), Juanito (Real Betis), Venta (Villarreal); Albelda, Baraja (both Valencia), Luis Garcia, Xabi Alonso (both Liverpool), Joaquin (Real Betis), Fabregas (Arsenal), Iniesta, Xavi (both Barcelona), Senna (Villarreal); Reyes (Arsenal), Morientes (Liverpool), Villa (Valencia), Torres (Atletico Madrid), Raul (Real Madrid).


    No Vicente, very surprised by Luis Aragones omission especially when he was waxing lyrical about how good Vicente is early this season. Elsewhere looks pretty much as one would expect, Morientes getting selected because his Raul's best friend and you would have to think people such as Senna, Lopez, Venta have no chance (injuries permitting) of travelling to Germany.

    Victor Valdez is another one who is unlucky to miss out i think, has looked very good in all the games that Barcelona has played this season.

    I would disagree, I think Valdes is not a particularly good or even safe GK though he has been far more impressive this season than last. But good enough to challenge Casillas, Canizares and Reina don’t think so.

    I would've though Iraola, would've least warranted a mention. Goal keepers are def. spot on though. Strikers have a sort of sameness to them, morientes seems to be getting really blah. I like the selection of Fabregas. All in all, a pretty good squad.

    Not a bad squad there. Definite quarter finalists.

    Surely Reina should be second choice for Spain, the form he has shown for Liverpool and made their defence look a lot better then what it did under Kirkland, Dudek etc.?

    A little bit surprised that Iniesta was there, doesn't like anything that special, or would push the likes of Xavi, Xabi Alonso etc.

    Iniesta's actually quite good from what I've seen of him. He's got talent for sure.

    i agree, hes been distinctly unimpressive, easily the weakest link in barcelonas side.

    With 24 goals this season since his summer switch from Real Zaragoza, does anybody believe that David Villa should start up front alongside Raul, or they will go with Torres instead. They have plenty of options depending on formation they would like to pick.
