Diego Costa is still recovering from a series of muscle injuries, as well as Man City’s Jesus Navas, however del Bosque is confident they will be fit in time for the World Cup.
“The expectations are good on Diego Costa and Navas, tomorrow they will have tests and on Saturday we will make a decision,” he said in a press conference on Thursday.
One of the players who should be highly concerned ahead of the final 23 man squad selection is Chelsea’s Fernando Torres, who is expected be given a starting berth in order to prove himself and attempt to capitalise on Costa’s injury.
Former Everton loanee and current Barcelona midfielder Gerard Deulofeu was called up by Del Bosque for the fixture against Bolivia, and could receive a ticket to Brazil pending a solid performance on Friday.
