Dani Carvajal, named in the initial 25-man list, is not included due to an injury suffered during Saturday's UEFA Champions League final. Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerín, capped for the first time on Sunday, takes his place.

Isco and Saúl Ñíguez have also been omitted, with 35-year-old Athletic striker Aritz Aduriz making the final cut.

"We've tried to balance the squad and I think we are well covered with these 23 players," said Del Bosque. "There are other players who could have made it but every player on the list is there by merit."
