7 Things Spain Coach Vicente Del Bosque Should Test Against Bolivia

Spain manager Vicente del Bosque has named a 19-man squad for his side's friendly with Bolivia on Friday, as reported by Inside Spanish Football.

It had previously been reported that La Roja's boss would announce his final 23-man World Cup squad on Sunday, following the conclusion of the UEFA Champions League final contested by Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid—two teams featuring a number of World Cup hopefuls. 

However, Del Bosque has delayed selecting his final 23 players, with the injury issue hanging over Diego Costa a primary concern for the manager. 

Consequently, the 63-year-old has announced a smaller group, which he described as a "continuity list," allowing players who contested the Champions League final to rest. 

With a low-key matchup against a vastly inferior opponent looming, it's likely Del Bosque will look to experiment a little in order to learn more about the various options available to him. 

Across the following slides, we outline the 19-man squad the manager has picked to face Bolivia, as well as seven things he could try at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Friday.
