Isco, Saul omitted from Spain's final Euro 2016 roster
Real Madrid's Francisco "Isco" Alarcon and Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez were left out of Spain's final squad for the European Championship on Tuesday.
The two were among six players competing for the final four spots available in the squad for the tournament in France. Spain coach Vicente del Bosque earlier Tuesday had announced a list with 19 players, leaving the final four spots open for those who played in Saturday's Champions League final between Madrid and Atletico.
Madrid's Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vazquez were included in the final squad, as well as Atletico's Juanfran Torres and Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion.
Madrid defender Dani Carvajal had already been ruled out of Euro 2016 because of a muscle injury sustained in the final won by his club in Milan.
Spain is aiming to win a third straight tournament after capturing Euro 2008 and Euro 2012.
Here is Spain's squad in full:
