Spain boss del Bosque warns quartet over World Cup chances

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque revealed that Chelsea striker Fernando Torres and Tottenham's Roberto Soldado, along with Juventus's Fernando Llorente, Atletico Madrid's David Villa, will find it tough to get into his squad for the World Cup. None of the four were named in the squad for Wednesday's friendly with France on Wednesday with Manchester City Alvaro Negreso and Atletico's Diego Costa the only recognised strikers picked by Del Bosque.

"There are a lot of forwards Soldado, Llorente, Villa, Fernando Torres, players who have been a fixture in the national team but we cannot take everyone," Del Bosque warned.
