Spain boss Del Bosque recalls Torres to squad

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque has recalled Fernando Torres, Jose Reina and Andres Iniesta for next week's opening 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 World Cup squad this summer but missed the friendly against Mexico earlier this month through injury.

The 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 (Under-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 September 3. 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 September 7.

Spain squad: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Victor Valdes (Barcelona), Jose Reina (Liverpool); Alvaro Arbeloa (Real Madrid), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Gerard Pique (Barcelona), Carlos Marchena (Villarreal), Joan Capdevila (Villarreal); Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Xavi (Barcelona), Santi Cazorla (Villarreal), Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Pedro Rodriguez (Barcelona), Jesus Navas (Sevilla), David Silva (Manchester City); David Villa (Barcelona), Fernando Llorente (Athletic Bilbao), Fernando Torres (Liverpool).
