FIFA World Cup 2010: Spain 23 Man Squad

Spain have selected their final 23 man squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Spain are strongly fancied to lift the trophy this year as a number of their key players – some of the best in the world – are at their peak in 2010, including the lethal strike pairing of Fernando Torres and David Villa.

As expected, coach Vicente Del Bosque has selected a team which heavily relies upon players from Barcelona and Real Madrid (12 of the 23 players are from either of the top two Spanish La Liga sides), but this must bode well for the national side as both teams once again made the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League this season, and the players from other clubs are generally of the highest calibre.

Spain will hope to qualify from Group H, which also features Honduras, Chile and Switzerland with a little in hand.

  3. Most of the factor for the World Champion 2010 are saying Spain will win the title. But usually it isn’t the big favourite that will win the tournament, so I think Brasil will make the race.
