Del Bosque shuffles pack of Euro champions

MADRID, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Vicente del Bosque, naming his first squad for European champions Spain on Thursday, made few changes for Wednesday's friendly in Denmark. The former Real Madrid coach, who replaced Luis Aragones after Spain's Euro 2008 victory in June, had said he would seek continuity but still sprang a couple of surprises. With Valencia centre back Carlos Marchena injured and Liverpool full back Alvaro Arbeloa left out, Del Bosque called up Athletic Bilbao duo Fernando Amorebieta, 23, and Andoni Iraola, 26. Injury to Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas opened the door for Sevilla's 20-year-old winger Diego Capel while up front relegated Real Zaragoza's Sergio Garcia made way for Barcelona's 17-year-old prodigy Bojan Krkic. Krkic ruled himself out of Euro 2008 saying he needed a rest. 'In relation to the previous coach we all have certain principles with regards to football that are the same but if we can bring something different of course we are going to do so,' Del Bosque told a news conference. 'Amorebieta had a great season last year, is left-footed, is quick with a good physical presence, while Iraola has a good deal of experience and I would like to see him close up. 'Bojan and Capel come through from the under-21s and along with their talent give us an injection of young blood that is important.' On the continued absence of Real Madrid striker Raul, Del Bosque said: 'He is in the same position as many players in Spain. We didn't think it right to call him up this time but the door is not closed'. Third-choice goalkeeper Andres Palop, recently returned from injury, was omitted from Thursday's 22-man squad. The match in Copenhagen serves as a warmup for the World Cup Group Five qualifiers against Bosnia and Armenia next month. Squad: Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Pepe Reina (Liverpool) Defenders: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Joan Capdevila (Villarreal), Raul Albiol (Valencia), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Fernando Navarro (Sevilla), Juanito (Real Betis), Andoni Iraola (Athletic Bilbao), Fernando Amorebieta (Athletic Bilbao) Midfielders: Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Xavi (Barcelona), David Silva (Valencia), Santi Cazorla (Villarreal), Xabi Alonso (Liverpool), Ruben de la Red (Real Madrid), Marcos Senna (Villarreal), Diego Capel (Sevilla) Forwards: David Villa (Valencia), Daniel Guiza (Fenerbahce), Fernando Torres (Liverpool), Bojan Krkic (Barcelona)
