Javi Martínez and Llorente left out of Euskadi squad

Euskadi, the Basque Country's national team, will face Bolivia next Sunday 30 at Real Sociedad's stadium Anoeta for their annual friendly.

The squad for the game has been announced, with World Cup winners Javi Martínez and Fernando Llorente left out.

Xabi Alonso is the only member of Spain's 2010 World Cup winning side to make it onto the 22-man squad list, which mostly consists of Athletic Bilbao players.

Eight players from 'Los Leones' have been named by coaches Mari Amorrortu and Mikel Etxarri for the match: Andoni Iraola, Gorka Iraizoz, Fernando Amorebieta, Gaizka Toquero, Markel Susaeta, Jon Aurtenetxe, Aritz Aduriz and Ibai Gómez.

Alonso's former side Real Sociedad, meanwhile, boast seven current players in the squad: Eñaut Zubikarai, Asier Illarramendi, Imanol Agirretxe, Íñigo Martínez, Carlos Martínez, Mikel González and Xabi Prieto.

The rest of the squad is made up by Oier Sanjurjo, Kike Sola (Osasuna), Beñat Etxebarria (Real Betis), Mikel Balenziaga (Valladolid), José Javier Barkero (Levante) and Mikel Rico (Granada).

It will be the first time Euskadi have played in Anoeta since 2004, when they beat Honduras 2-0 thanks to two goals by Fran Yeste.
