Vicente Del Bosque published the provisional squad list for France Euro 2016 to be played this summer. The Spanish coach included five Barcelona players: Jordi Alba, Bartra, Busquets, Iniesta and Piqué. Finally, Sergi Roberto has been ruled out of the squad despite playing with them for the first time some days ago and doing a great season with FC Barcelona.

In the list there are also four former Barça players: Thiago, Pedro, Cesc and Nolito. Regarding absence, it's noticable not to see Diego Costa, Alcácer or Fernando Torres. However, players like Lucas Vázquez, Saúl and San Jose have been included despite not expecting it. Del Bosque has opted for two strikers as Morata and Aduriz.

Two players out of these 25 will be ruled out in the coming days. In addition, the coach Del Bosque has confirmed that he will take some young players to increase the competition in previous training before the matches. One of these is Denis Suárez, currently at Villarreal and the probable first signing for Barça next season. The rest are: Asenjo, Paul Lopez, Meré, Bellerín, Jonny, Llorente, Fornals, Asensio, Oyarzabal and Williams.

 

The Spanish team is in Group D and will face the Czech Republic (Monday 13 June), Turkey (Friday 17 June) and Croatia (Tuesday 21 June).
