Coach Vicente del Bosque included Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas in Spain's 23-man World Cup squad, which features most of the team that won the European championship two years ago.

Del Bosque expects Torres and Fabregas to recover from injuries in time for the June 11-July 11 tournament in South Africa.

Spain's first Group H game is against Switzerland on June 16.

Spain will count on the core of their Euro 2008 team, with striker David Villa in front of midfielders Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, Xabi Alonso, and David Silva.

Del Bosque decided to bring Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes, while forward Pedro Rodriguez's impressive season with the league champion earned him a spot.

Villarreal's Marcos Senna was not included.
