[WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Despite worries about the fitness of Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas and Liverpool's Fernando Torres, the two EPL stars were included in Spain's 30-player preliminary squad for the World Cup Coach Vicente del Bosque on Monday.

Doctors said both players were recovering well.

La Liga leader Barcelona led all teams with seven players on the short list for the World Cup.

The youngest player called up was 19-year-old Atletico Madrid keeper David de Gea.

Del Bosque wasn't expected to name his 23 players until May 20 before they head to Austria for a training camp.

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), David De Gea (Atletico Madrid), Diego Lopez (Villareal), Pepe Reina (Liverpool), Victor Valdes (Barcelona).
Defenders: Raul Albiol (Real Madrid), Alvaro Arbeloa (Real Madrid), Cesar Azpilicueta (Osasuna), Joan Capdevila (Villarreal), Carlos Marchena (Valencia), Gerard Pique (Barcelona), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid).
Midfielders: Xabier Alonso (Real Madrid), Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), Javi Martinez (Athletic Bilbao), Marcos Senna (Villarreal), David Silva (Valencia), Xavi (Barcelona).
Forwards: Santi Cazorla (Villarreal), Jesus Navas (Sevilla), Juan Manuel Mata (Valencia), Pedro (Barcelona), Dani Guiza (Fenerbache), Fernando Llorente (Athletic Bilbao), Alvaro Negredo (Sevilla), Fernando Torres (Liverpool), David Villa (Valencia).
