Spain boss Vincente del Bosque has put his faith in the belief that a trio of his star studded squad will all win their races against fitness, as he named his 30 man World Cup preliminary squad. Liverpool’s Fernando Torres makes the squad, despite some apparent recent set backs in recovering from the injury which had kept him out of his clubs side for the end of the domestic season. He is being closely watched by medical staff, and there were recent admissions by his doctors that he would not be fit enough for the Spain’s first World Cup Fixture of the tournament, which is against Switzerland. But, with such a fantastic goal scoring record, there is no surprise that the star striker has make it into the provisional squad.

The same can be said of Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who has stated himself this week that he is certain of 100% fitness for the World Cup. Fabregas, who picked up a leg injury which also kept him out of the end of the Barclays Premier League season, is a key factor in midfielder, especially as the nation is awaiting the return to full fitness of Barcelona star Andres Iniesta. Iniesta is the cornerstone of midfield for club and country, and probably the most accomplished player in the world, in his position. The news and belief that this Spanish trio will be fit, will only boost the mood of any punters who are thinking of betting on Spain at the World Cup. Heading into the tournament, the European Champions are outright favourites.

Betting World Cup at Bwin, has the Spaniards out at 9/2 favourites to lift the trophy, and to put a new name on the list of winners. There are not too many surprises to the squad itself, and the only uncapped players in the 30 man provisional call up, are battlers for third goalkeeper spot Victor Valdes and David De Gea, while 22 goal Barcelona striker, Pedro Rodriguez has forced his way into the squad. Bosque has been reliant on the names which helped Spain capture the European Championships in 2008. Spain go up against Switzerland, Chile and Honduras in Group H of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
