World Cup 2010: Spain Squad - Pedro And Victor Valdes Make 30-Man Provisional Roster

Call-ups for Barca custodian, Atleti ‘keeper and trio of uncapped starlets…

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has named his provisional 30-man squad for this summer's World Cup in South Africa.

Among the notable inclusions are Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes and young Atletico shot-stopper David De Gea. With Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas as Del Bosque’s number one and Liverpool's Pepe Reina thought to be second choice, Valdes and De Gea will be competing with Villarreal’s Diego Lopez for a seat on the plane to Africa.

Elsewhere, there are call-ups for Barcelona starlet Pedro, Osasuna’s Cesar Azpilicueta and Athletic Bilbao’s highly rated midfielder Javi Martinez, all of whom are uncapped at the senior level.

Up-front, Dani Guiza and Alvaro Negredo have earned call-ups but look unlikely to make the final squad while Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente will most likely compete with Pedro for the final slot upfront.

Spain’s final list of 23 will be made known on May 19. La Roja are drawn in Group H alongside Chile, Honduras and Switzerland.

LOL @ Dodgy number 1 (All three of their keepers are better than 95% of the rest of the keepers who will be in SA)

LOL @ Full backs not being able to defend (Gonna have to post this again to educate some heads. SERGIO RAMOS WON ALL WORLD DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR IN 05/06. Caps so heads can learn easier).

LOL @ 'They never do anything at the world cup' (Same sh*t was said before EURO2008 and after the final you had twats like this portuguese guy getting wet over Xavi's passing and sh*t)

Senna is cultured but there aint a midfielder in the squad who he deserves to go instead of

Fernando Torres says Spain's defeat to France in the 2006 World Cup finals inspired them to transform their fortunes.

Underachievement on the international stage looked set to continue for Luis Aragones' team as they were sent tumbling out at the round of 16 in Germany four years ago.

A Zinedine Zidane inspired France coasted to a 3-1 victory that night, but Spain were to come back stronger two years later.

Torres scored the winner to crown his team European champions in 2008, ending decades of disappointment on the biggest stage.

And the Liverpool striker says the loss to France was the major turning point in becoming one of the best sides in the world.

Superior level

Spain are being hotly tipped to build on their European glory by winning the World Cup in South Africa, and should such expectations be fulfilled, Torres will be indebted to the pain of the loss in Hannover.

"In the 2006 World Cup in Germany, France taught us a big lesson," he said in the News of the World. "Without deserving it, back in Spain we gave ourselves the title of favourites for that match. We saw France as a beaten team even though they should have been favourites.

"They had players of a superior level, but because Zidane was close to retirement and they hadn't played well in group games we thought we would get through. In that match they showed us why there were better than us.

"They had the experience of winning titles and knew what big competition was all about. They were not afraid of being in the last 16. They didn't feel the pressure. They played their game the way they knew how and they were all over us.

"They had been playing together a long time and despite all the criticism they won when they needed to, just like all great teams. From that moment on we began to build a block, a style, an identity.

"Thanks to Aragones and despite all the criticism which rained down on us, that was the turning point.

"The more the manager was criticised, the more we were with him. And from then on, we were as one - the players and the coach. We went on to win everything through the Euros."

Torres said anticipation of his team's success could prove to be their undoing in this summer's competition, with pressure on Vicente del Bosque's side likely to be higher given their success of two years previous.

The Spaniards' passage into the knockout stages appears to be a favourable one, with Honduras, Chile and Switzerland standing between them in Group H.

Biggest enemy

Spain's turnaround was derailed in last year's Confederations Cup when the USA inflicted a 2-0 semi-final defeat and Torres says the humbling has helped improve his team and provided a timely reminder of the dangers of being complacent.

He added: "The biggest enemy for us is off the field without a doubt. Besides that match against France there was another important game. It was the one last year against the USA in the Confederations Cup and we lost that game 2-0.

"Now we are a team that knows how to win just like France in 2006, but we also know what it is to lose to an inferior team. We respect our rivals because humility is one of the forces of this Spain team.

"But it's good to be aware that defeat can happen. Our biggest enemy is being too relaxed. We are our own biggest enemy."
