Witness, once again, the embarrassment of riches available to reigning World Cup and European champion Spain.
Spanish manager Vicente del Bosque on Friday announced his roster for next week’s friendly against Uruguay. Most of the usual suspects fill out the list, including Adres Iniesta, Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Cesc Fabregas, David Villa, David Silva … we could go on.
But not on the list is Fernando Torres or Michu, who is having such a sensational season this year for Swansea City.
Michu has been among the gems of last summer’s transfer window, arriving into the Premier League club from Rayo Vallecano for $3.2 million. He’s been a little cooler lately, but still sits fourth in EPL scoring with 13 goals this year.
Chelsea’s Torres has seven goals this season.
The entire Spain squad for Tuesday’s friendly in Doha is here.
