spainMADRID: Spain have named Euro 2012 winners Jordi Alba, Juan Mata and Javi Martinez in their 22-man squad for the London Olympics.
Chelsea midfielder Mata and Barcelona-bound fullback Alba, both scored in Sunday's 4-0 final win over Italy in Kiev.
Mata's clubmate Oriol Romeu and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea are also selected in coach Luis Milla's squad, who will be reduced to 18.
Barca's Martin Montoya, Cristian Tello and Thiago Alcantara are also in.
Mata, 24, and Athletic Bilbao midfielder Martinez, 23, are both over-age picks, along with Atletico Madrid's 24-year-old striker Adrian Lopez.
World champions Spain became the first side to retain the European title with victory in Kiev, and in the process made history by winning three successive major tournaments.
Milla named his squad the day after Mata, Alba and Martinez were involved in a huge homecoming celebration as the Spanish team paraded the Henri Delaunay trophy through the streets of Madrid.
"I believe it would be unfair to demand that this team be at the same level as the full national team," said Milla.
"This team have character and a similar playing philosophy but it is a different team under different pressures."
The Olympic squad will join up on Friday and will face Senegal on July 13 and Mexico Juy 18 in friendlies before heading to London for the Games, where they have been drawn in Group D along with Japan, Honduras and Morocco.
The squad: David De Gea (Man Und) Diego Marino (Villarreal), Joel Robles (Atletico), Jordi Alba (Valencia/Barcelona), Cesar Azpilicueta (Marseille), Alberto Botia (Sporting Gijon), Alvaro Dominguez (Bor Monchengladbach), Inigo Martinez (R.Sociedad), Javi Martinez, Mikel San Joe (both At Bilba), Martin Montya (Barca), Thiago Alcantara, Cristian Tello (both Barca), Ander Herrera (Ath Bilbao), Isco (Malaga), Koke (Atletico Madrid), Juan Mata, Oriol Romeu (both Chelsea), Adrian Lopez (Atletico), Iker Muniain (Ath Bilbao), Rodrigo (Benfica), Alvaro Vazquez (Espanyol).
