Spain coach Vicente del Bosque omitted Torres from his last few squads but included the 29-year-old striker in a 26-man party on Monday.

The group will be reduced to 23 for next month's tournament in Brazil following this weekend's final round of Primera Division matches.

Torres netted 22 goals in 64 appearances for Chelsea this season and was a regular scorer in the Blues' successful Europa League campaign, including netting the opening goal in the 2-1 final win over Benfica earlier this month.

Also earning a recall was midfielder Martinez, who produced an impressive performance in Bayern Munich's Champions League final victory over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Manchester City midfielder Javi Garcia, Real Betis midfielder Benat Etxebarria and Valencia striker Roberto Soldado are also in the provisional group, along with captain Iker Casillas, who has not played for Real Madrid since January.

There is no place for Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo or Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente, however.

Spain have been drawn in Group B of the Confederations Cup, with their first game coming against Uruguay in Recife on June 16.

Four days later they play Tahiti in Rio de Janeiro before taking on Nigeria in Fortaleza on June 23.

Prior to the tournament the world and European champions have friendlies against Haiti and the Republic of Ireland in the United States.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
