MADRID, Spain -- Spains preliminary 30-player squad for the World Cup included most of the key players that helped the country win its last three major tournaments, with Brazilian-born striker Diego Costa the highest-profile newcomer. The defending champions sent their preliminary list to FIFA on Tuesday, with coach Vicente del Bosque to announce the final 23-man squad on May 25. Costa is set to lead the attack in his native Brazil, with Atletico Madrid teammate David Villa and Chelseas Fernando Torres also included, while David de Gea replaces injured goalkeeper Victor Valdes. Fullback Alvaro Arbeloa, who has been part of Spains two European Championship triumphs and its World Cup win in South Africa, was left out despite returning from a long-term injury. Real Madrid teammate Dani Carvajal fills his spot. In all, 18 of the 23 players who were in South Africa were included in the preliminary squad. Spain begins Group B play against the Netherlands on June 13 in Salvador in a rematch of the 2010 final which it won 1-0 after extra time. Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo is also included, although Del Bosque could again opt to use Cesc Fabregas as a "false" striker up front. Villa is Spains all-time leading goalscorer and Torres scored in the finals of its Euro 2008 and 12 victories, but at least one of them is likely to be dropped from the final squad. Del Bosque also called on Spain regulars Juan Mata and Santi Cazorla, with creative Madrid midfielder Isco left out. Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Iturraspe was a surprise inclusion. Andres Iniesta, who scored the winner in the final at Soccer City four years ago, is in midfield alongside Xavi Hernandez, David Silva, Koke, and Thiago Alcantara, who was included despite missing the end of Bayern Munichs season because of an injury. Goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas will play in his fourth World Cup, while Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique will anchor Spains defence. Javi Martinez is also available at centre back or in a holding midfield role alongside Sergio Busquets and Xabi Alonso. With Jordi Alba set to start at left back, Carvajal looks set to fill Arbeloas place on the right, with Juanfran Torres and Cesar Azpilicueta also available. Carvajal has yet to make an appearance for Spain. Spain faces Chile in Rio de Janeiro on June 18 before closing group play against Australia on June 23 in Curitiba. ------ Spain: Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Pepe Reina (Napoli), David de Gea (Manchester United) Defenders: Juanfran Torres (Atletico Madrid), Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Gerard Pique (Barcelona), Raul Albiol (Napoli), Javi Martinez (Bayern Munich), Alberto Moreno (Sevilla), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid). Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Xavi Hernandez (Barcelona), Koke (Atletico Madrid), Thiago Alcantara (Bayern Munich), Jesus Navas (Manchester City), David Silva (Manchester City), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Santi Cazorla (Arsenal), Ander Iturraspe (Athletic Bilbao), Juan Mata (Manchester United). Forwards: Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona), Pedro Rodriguez (Barcelona), Alvaro Negredo (Manchester City), Diego Costa (Atletico Madrid), David Villa (Atletico Madrid), Fernando Torres (Chelsea), Fernando Llorente (Juventus).

Pedro Geromel Brazil Jersey .Lets go back to the Avs, who have become one of the funnest teams to watch in this years playoffs.As Manchester United, like Arsenal and Manchester City before them were humbled on the European stage in midweek, the infernal debate about what the best league in Europe rages on. Even Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger felt the urge to discuss the matter during his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrows visit to Stoke. Anointing the BPL the best, Wenger trotted out the top to bottom competiveness theory. What cant be denied though is that English football is never too far away from grabbing the football headlines. This weeks offering began with a slip of the Mourinho lips. Then we had the national manager waxing lyrical about the possibility of adding a Penalty Psychologist to his Brazil bound backroom staff and how about this mornings revelation Sir Alex Ferguson attributes six of the best as a school boy influenced his managerial ways. Mourinho was clearly agitated and embarrassed when he faced the media Tuesday following the publication less than 24 hours earlier of disparaging remarks he made about Torres, Etoo and Demba Ba to a senior executive of a club partner. Unbeknown to Mourinho, what he thought was a private conversation ahead of a scheduled interview, was in fact been taped by a French TV channel. Who in turn published it for the world to see on their website. Using the old adage the best form of defense is attack, The Happy One launched into the media labeling them a disgrace for publishing extracts of that conversation - which included mocking Etoo and wondering out loud if he was actually older than his stated age. Torres had the last laugh though by responding to his managers harsh words in the most effective way possible by putting Chelsea up early in Wednesdays first leg against Galatasaray. It was no laughing matter not long after the final whistle in Istanbul when Chelsea revealed the club would be immortalized on the small screen in an upcoming edition of the Simpsons. In which a number of players, including Torres will feature in an episode where Bart Simpson plays referee. The week for Torres though didnt end on a happy note. We learnt earlier today and long with Manchester Uniteds Juan Mata both players had been omitted from Spains squad for next weeks prestigious friendly match against the 2006 World Cup winners, Italy. Roy Hodgson who named Toronto FCs Jermaine Defoe in his squad for the March 5 friendly at Wembley versus Denmark yesterday, made news earlier in the week when addressing England penalty woes at tournaments. The England manager, along with all other managers of the 32 nations going to this summers World Cup Finals, has just returned from visiting Brazil let it be known earlier in the week he is giving serious thought to having a psychologist at his disposal as ways to improve on Englands inability to win penalty shootouts. Hodgson experienced penalty misery first hand at Euro 2012 when Italy eliminated England in the quarter finals but certainly does not want to suffer that same fate for a team that has bowed out on penalties in six of the last 10 major tournaments they have qualifiied for.dddddddddddd One of world footballs most dubious of records only once over this period have England progressed from the Achilles Heel of a penalty shootout. This occurring when they edged out Spain at EURO 96 - only then to fail at the next hurdle, Germany beating England on penalties in the semifinal. Hodgson isnt the first England World Cup manager to make the headlines for matters of the mind. As part of final preparations for the 1998 Finals the-then England manager Glen Hoddle arranged for a faith healer to visit the England camp before their departure to France. Such were part of Hoddles unorthodox methods, the ex-Manchester United captain Gary Neville revealed in his 2011 autobiography Hoddle had requested his staff walk around the pitch anti-clockwise as ways to create positive energy before their round of 16 match against Argentina. A match won, by you guessed it, Argentina on penalties. Paired in a group this summer with Uruguay and Italy my how the legions of England fans who will journey to Brazil would dearly love to face the possibility of a penalty shootout. At least this would signify England had successfully made it out of a difficult group. Sir Alex Ferguson who tasted penalty glory himself in the 2008 Champions League Final made it on to the back pages today when it was revealed in the London Times that as a school boy he often found himself in trouble. Not only that, but Ferguson disclosed he felt the corporal punishment he received because of his bad boy ways went a long way to helping shape his hair dryer ways. He also revealed the belt which was used now hangs proudly on the wall of his study at home. With Manchester United not in action this weekend as their scheduled opponent, Manchester City play Sunderland in Sundays League Cup Final, perhaps it might be an idea if Ferguson invites David Moyes over for a cup of tea. In a BPL season which continues to shock, and will do so until mid May, tomorrows action throws up potential banana skins for each of the clubs who currently sit in the Champions League slots. The West London derby sees the current leaders Chelsea, paying a visit to the worst club, Fulham who are desperate for a win. Especially so after coughing up an 86th minute equalizer away to West Brom last Saturday, welcome to the BPL Felix Magath. Arsenal, with a well-rested Mezut Ozil expected to return following his own penalty demons, are sure to be weary of Stokes direct approach. While Liverpool wont need reminding of their early season 0-1 reversal at home to Southampton - result which knocked them off the top spot. Even though his club arent playing, whats the odds occasional Manchester United bad boy Wayne Rooney does not feature prominently come Sundays tabloid headlines?

TORONTO - A rival scout, in town to see the Blue Jays play the Orioles last weekend, was captivated after taking one look at Moises Sierras offensive numbers. He was particularly interested in the number of extra base hits per at bats. Entering play Thursday, Sierra was 23-for-75 (.307) since his recall from Triple-A Buffalo on August 21. Of those 23 hits, 15 have gone for extra bases (13 doubles, one triple, one home run). Break it down further and Sierra has reached at least second base in 20 per cent of his at bats. When the scout was presented with the small sample size argument, he quickly retorted, "The guy can hit a baseball. Hes a natural talent." This is what makes Sierra such an interesting ballplayer at this point in his career. He can wow you with his power. His right field arm can best be described as cannon-like. The natural attributes are so apparent. So too, however, are the gaffes. Sierras baserunning, to be diplomatic, leaves something to be desired. He gets caught wandering. There was one occasion, last weekend, when it appeared he had lost track of the number of outs in the inning while at third base. That cannon-like arm, while powerful, isnt always accurate. Cutoff men get missed. A throw ends up in the seats. On occasion, hes taken strange routes to fly balls which fall as a result. It all lends itself to the feeling that youre on a wild adventure with Sierra. A good thing will happen at some turns and bad things will happen at others. It will never be boring, quite the opposite, and the result is always unpredictable. "A work in progress," said one Blue Jays executive. The Jays have a decision to make on Sierra. Hes out of options, which means the club cannot demote him to the minor leagues next season without first exposing him to irrevocable waivers. Again, with that natural talent, Sierra would likely be claimed. Maybe hes trade bait, a guy who could be made part of a package deal to acquire a player who would address one of the Jays many needs. He does not appear to be, at this time, a suitable replacement in right field should general manager Alex Anthopoulos stun the fan base and ship Jose Bautista out of town. Still, Sierra believes hes ready to be a full-time major leaguer. "I feel comfortable right now," he said. "When I came up, the first couple of at bats I didnt feel comfortable but Ive worked in the cage with the hitting coach and now I feel better." Prior to Edwin Encarnacions season-ending wrist injury, Sierra was working with the star hitter on his swing and on pitch recognition. Unlike Encarnacions work with Brett Lawrie, which featured a lot of video, Sierra spent time with Encarnacion in the cage and, simply, just talking. Sierra is making adjustments as he grows more comfortable. "Hes getting in a better position to hit," said hitting coach Chad Mottola. "He gets so anxious sometimes, kind of the way he plays the game hitting, it gets him out of position to hit the fastball. But I think, in time, Eddies kind of talked about approach to certain pitchers and just experience." Manager John Gibbons has often referred to the larger stadia, the effect of the third deck, when discussing the adjustment from Triple-A to the big leagues. It can be a lot to absorb, the atmosphere, and add the fact Sierra isnt used to the fake grass at Rogers Centre makes for some getting used to. "I think hes played solid," said first base coach Dwayne Murphy, who also coaches the outfielders. "This is a big, huge difference between the minor leagues and big leagues. The ball travels faster, it gets out there faster and hes just making the adjustment, catching up to game speed. I think hes done very well. Hes made great catches, ran balls down." The final word goes to the hitting coach. Youve got to understand, the more we throw them out there, the more they get experience and the game teaches them just as much as we do," said Mottola. "Its one of those things. Its getting better so thats the good thing." ENCARNACION UNDERGOES SURGERY Edwin Encarnacion underwent successful surgery on his left wrist on Wednesday and will need approximately two months of recovery time. Encarnacion played in 142 games this season. With a slash line of .272/.370/.534, he enjoyed a second-straight season with an OPS above .900 (.904). Encarnacion hit 36 home runs, had 104 RBI, walked more times (82) than he struck out (62) and participated in the first All-Star Game of his career. GIBBONS CONFIDENT OF BULLPEN BOUNCEBACK Casey Janssen has reached the 30-save plateau for the first time in his career; Sergio Santos is healthy for the first time since arriving in Toronto; Steve Delabar and Brett Cecil had terrific first halves before being derailed by injury; Aaron Loup is consistent; Dustin McGowan and Neil Wagner are throwing the ball hard. Despite leading the majors in innings pitched for most of the season (now ranked third), manager John Gibbons is confident his bullpen will continue to perform to the standard it has set. "I dont see why there should be any drop off," said manager John Gibbons. "You know, it does happen a lot in baseball - its usually that odd year because when guys are really good they get used a lot, lets say this year, and that usually leads to drop off the following year and a lot of times they regroup and theyre that much better the next year. Most of thats because of the workload. Were conscious of that and I dont think theres been too much excess that should affect them next year." Cecil experienced shoulder fatigue in July and believes the nerve problem he is currently experiencing in his elbow is linked. Steve Delabar is tired, even if he wont come right out and say it. Casey Janssen has grinded through most of the year at less than 100 per cent. Its the nature of the beast. "If youre ever going to win and youre going to get through September and play in October, I mean thats a long season and youve got to figure it out," said Gibbons. "Youre not always going to be good, youre not always going to have your best stuff, whatever it is and youve got to find a way to survive. Thats what the good ones do and thats what the teams that win, their relievers, they get used a lot but theyre effective through most of the year." Sam Mewis Jersey .

Buck Pierces time was marred by several injuries while none from the cast of backups, from Alex Brink and Joey Elliott to Max Hall, Justin Goltz, and Jason Boltus, managed to distinguish themselves during their opportunities for the team. Even the Ottawa Redblacks, not yet having played a game, appear better set behind centre. Compared to some of Winnipegs rotation of quarterbacks the past couple seasons, the expansion team has an embarrassment of riches at the position with veterans Henry Burris and Kevin Glenn, and two-year pro Thomas DeMarco. With the trade and subsequent contract extension for former Saskatchewan Roughriders QB Drew Willy, Bombers GM Kyle Walters is hoping all his QB problems are in the past. After losing out to Zach Collaros and Hennry Burris just days before, Walters finally landed a QB to be penciled in atop his depth chart heading into the 2014 season; but will Willy stay there, and more importantly, will he find success where so many before him have faltered? The 27-year-old is light on experience, having started just two games in his career behind Darian Durant in Saskatchewan, but has shown potential in his limited action.dddddddddddd Willy threw just 52 passes last season, going for 473 yards and four touchdowns to just one interception. He saw a little more action last year, his first in the league, and for his career is 101-147 for 1,182 yards and nine touchdowns to five interceptions. His resume is light, but theres enough to get excited about with the Buffalo product. The Rouge asks: Is Drew Willy the answer at quarterback for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers? As always, its Your! Call.
