KEY: Purple Players No Caps

Ambitious naming 5 goalkeapers, only 3 will go. Some very attacking midfielders also in the squad, such as Mata, Silva, Navas and Pedro, who has been in good form for Barca this season; This looks like its been a very purposeful decision, with worries over the fitness of Torres.

I am going to guess the players which will not make the cut, and i will guess (providing no injuries) will be:

David de Gea, V√≠ctor Vald√©s, C√©sar Azpilicueta, Javi Mart√≠nez, Pedro Rodr√≠guez, Sergio Busquets¬†, Dani G√ľiza.

Its hard to choose¬†who to take out!!! Maybe Navas or Cazorla; Maybe one of the centre midfielders (Busquets); I suppose¬†one forward¬†will not make it so maybe G√ľiza…Who knows!?!? This is a good problem to have, too many players, unlike England, who have so many worries! ūüėČ

I think all the players i want to get called up did, no space for Bojan, but looking at that squad it looks strong enough.
