Vicente Del Bosque selected his preliminary team ahead of the competition next month, as La Roja look to get back to winning ways - having triumphed in the 2008 and 2012 European Championships.

Perhaps the biggest surprise is that Costa, Torres or Mata were not picked, while Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin was also left out by Del Bosque.

Spain’s Euro 2016 squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, David de Gea, Sergio Rico

Defenders: Juanfran, Dani Carvajal, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos, Jordi Alba, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marc Bartra

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, Thiago Alcantara, David Silva, Koke, Saul, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro, Isco, Bruno Soriano, Mikel San Jose

Attackers: Alvaro Morata, Aritz Aduriz, Nolito, Lucas Vasquez

Biggest omissions: Diego Costa, Fernando Torres, Jesus Navas, Juan Mata, Hector Bellerin
