FOOTBALL: Fernando Torres in Spain squad for Confederations Cup

Published:Tuesday | May 28, 2013 | 8:29 AM

Out-of-favour Spain striker Fernando Torres has been named in his country's provisional Confederations Cup squad.

The 29-year-old Chelsea striker, who won the Europa League with the London club this season, had failed to make Spain coach Vicente del Bosque's recent squads.

Eight other English-based players have been selected, with the 26-strong party being reduced to 23 before the start of the tournament in Brazil on June 15.

Barcelona's Carles Puyol and Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo miss out.
