With the World Cup only three months away, Camacho has named an interesting 19 man squad for next week's friendly game with Holland. Two exciting youngsters, Bilbao's Tiko and Capi from Betis have been included for their first caps, and Real Sociedad's De Pedro and Deportivo's César and Sergio have all been recalled. Hierro and Raúl also return after missing the friendly with Portugal through injury. Out go Téllez, Sergi, Salgado, Xavi, Mendieta, Baraja, Munitis and Tamudo, although all must be considered as candidates for the summer squad as the manager tries to give everyone a run out before making his final decision. The full squad is as follows:
Keepers: Casillas (Real Madrid), Cañizares (Valencia).
Defenders: Pujol (Barcelona), Juanfran (Celta), César (Deportivo), Nadal (Mallorca), Hierro (Real Madrid), Curro Torres (Valencia).
Midfielders: Capi and Joaquín (Betis), Tiko (Bilbao), Sergio and Valerón (Deportivo), Iván Helguera (Real Madrid), De Pedro (Real Sociedad), Vicente (Valencia).
Forwards: Diego Tristán (Deportivo), Morientes and Raúl (Real Madrid).
The game will kick off at 20:30 next Wednesday night in Feyenoord's stadium in Rotterdam. Only one friendly match remains, against Northern Ireland in mid-April, before Camacho has to name his World Cup group of players. (22.03.02)
