Del Bosque explains omission of Jesus Navas & inclusion of Fernando Torres in Spain squad [videos]
Spain announced their final 23-man squad to go to the World Cup on Saturday and Vicente Del Bosque was left to explain the whys and wherefores.
The video above sees Vicente Del Bosque explain why Manchester City winger Jesus Navas did not make the cut.
Essentially, due to an ankle injury that curtailed his involvement in the final weeks of the Premier League season.
Del Bosque was also forced to defend the inclusion of Fernando Torres after El Nino’s recent struggles, including a big miss last night against Bolivia.
As has been known for some time, Del Bosque likes having Torres in his squad and with the Chelsea striker’s history with La Furia Roja, you can understand why. Video below.
