Disappointment for the deserving Bruno--Del Bosque does not include him in the Spain group of 30.

Disappointment for Bruno as he does not make Spain WC squad

The Spain list is here:

Keepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Pepe Reina (Nápoles) y David de Gea (Manchester United).

Defenders: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Gerard Piqué (Barcelona), Raúl Albiol (Nápoles), Javier Martínez (Bayern de Múnich), Juanfran Torres (Atlético), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), César Azpiliciueta (Chelsea), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid) y Alberto Moreno (Sevilla).

Midfielders: Xavi Hernández (Barcelona), Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Andrés Iniesta (Barcelona), Koke Resurrección (Atlético), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Santi Cazorla (Arsenal), Ander Iturraspe (Athletic), Cesc Fábregas (Barcelona), Thiago Alcántara (Bayern de Múnich), Juan Mata (Manchester United), David Silva (Manchester City), Pedro Rodríguez (Barcelona), Jesús Navas (Manchester City).

Strikers: Diego Costa (Atlético), David Villa (Atlético), Fernando Torres (Chelsea), Álvaro Negredo (Manchester City) y Fernando Llorente (Juventus).

Yes, there are many deserving players in Spain , especially in the midfield, but Iturraspe ahead of Bruno?  Really??

You could make a pretty good XI from those that weren't selected:

Valdes; Arbeloa, Bartra, Inigo Martinez, Monreal; Gabi, Bruno, Herrera; Isco, Aduriz, Jese, just for starters.
