Del Bosque unveils younger Spain squad following World Cup debacle
MADRID - Vicente del Bosque has unveiled a rejuvenated Spain squad after the debacle at this summer's World Cup and the retirement of three key players from the team's most successful era.
The Spain coach has named a squad that features four new faces for next Thursday's friendly in France and Spain's opening 2016 European Championship qualifier against Macedonia on Sept. 8.
Atletico midfielder Raul Garcia, Valencia striker Pablo Alcacer, Athletic Bilbao defender Mikel San Jose and Espanyol goalkeeper Kiko Casilla all got their first calls.
Del Bosque also included Chelsea striker Diego Costa despite what the manager says is only a "knock" he had received in practice with his new club.
