Line-ups: Spain-Bolivia

Vicente Del Bosque names Pepe Reina in goal and Javi Martinez in defence for Spain’s World Cup warm-up against Bolivia.

The 19-man squad for the friendly with the South Americans includes 18 of the 30 players named in Del Bosque’s preliminary group and Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu.

No one who featured in the Champions League final for Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid are involved, with Fernando Llorente, Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas also missing out.

Navas is recovering from injury but Llorente and Negredo have been left out, although Del Bosque has insisted it doesn’t mean they won’t be in the final 23 to go to Brazil when the squad is named this weekend.

Reina gets the nod over David De Gea to start at Sevilla’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan while hometown boy Alberto Moreno plays at left-back. Cesar Azpilicueta gets the right-back berth.

Gerard Pique is joined by Martinez with Sergio Ramos not considered and Ander Iturraspe makes his debut in partnership with Xavi Hernandez in midfield.

Fernando Torres has been picked as an orthodox striker to be supported by Santi Cazorla, Juan Mata and Pedro.

Bolivia have only two players in their squad who ply their trade outside their homeland – midfielder Vicente Arze, who plays for Ukraine’s Hoverla Uzhhorod, and striker Marcelo Moreno, of Cruzeiro in Brazil.

Both players start for La Verde. Moreno has played for the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk, Wigan Athletic and Werder Bremen.

Bolivia failed to reach World Cup 2014, finishing second bottom of South American qualifying, above Paraguay.

Spain: Reina; Azpilicueta, Pique, Javi Martinez, Moreno; Iturraspe, Xavi; Cazorla, Mata, Pedro; Torres

Bolivia: Quinonez; Diego Bejarano, Equino, Raldes, Gutierrez, Marvin Bejarano; Melean, Mojica; Chumacero, Arce; Moreno
