Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has named his 21-man squad for next Wednesday’s friendly with Colombia in Madrid. He has also warned every player to be prepared to play the full 90 minutes, despite a request from Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho not to overload the players.
Del Bosque told reporters:
“We care for everyone in whatever we can, but we will demand the maximum. I’ve called up a few that are doing well, players who are playing a big role. But everyone is playing well, so we want them aware of how difficult it is to be in this team. Colombia are a good team, almost all their players play in European leagues, and are a team that is well established.”
