Coach Vicente del Bosque has recalled Fernando Torres along with fellow Chelsea teammate Juan Mata for Spain's warm-up matches ahead of the upcoming European Championship.

The struggling Torres had been dropped for Spain's most recent friendly, but the striker managed to make the squad after Chelsea won the Champions League on Saturday.

The defending European champion began training for the tournament in Poland and the Ukraine on Monday without players from Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao, which will play in the Copa del Rey final on Friday.

Spain will play a friendly against Serbia in Switzerland on Saturday, one day before Del Bosque releases his definitive squad list for the tournament.
