Trio recalled by Del Bosque
Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque has recalled Fernando Torres, Jose Reina and Andres Iniesta for next week's opening UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Liechtenstein and the subsequent friendly against Argentina.
Liverpool duo Torres and Reina and Barcelona midfielder Iniesta were all part of Spain's victorious FIFA World Cup squad this summer but missed the friendly against Mexico earlier this month through injury.
The FIFA World Cup winners absent from Del Bosque's 21-man squad named today are Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol (injury), Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez (U-21 duty) and Valencia forward Juan Manuel Mata.
Villarreal playmaker Santi Cazorla, the only player included who did not go to South Africa this summer, retains his place after being called up for the Mexico match.
Spain, the reigning European champions, begin their EURO 2012 qualifying campaign against Liechtenstein in Vaduz on 3 September. Also in Group I are Czech Republic, Scotland and Lithuania.
Del Bosque's men will then play a friendly against Argentina in Buenos Aires on 7 September.
