LAS ROZAS DE MADRID, Spain (AFP) - Chelsea striker Diego Costa was left out of Spain coach Vicente del Bosque's provisional 25-man squad for Euro 2016 on Tuesday.

The nationalised Brazilian missed Chelsea's last two games of the season due to a persistent hamstring injury and has struggled at international level with just one goal in 10 games since declaring to play for Spain in 2013.

World Cup winners Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Javi Martinez were also high-profile names left out by del Bosque.
