Spain coach Vicente del Bosque is confident injured duo Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas will be 100 per cent fit in time for his side's opening World Cup match against Switzerland on June 16.

Liverpool striker Torres is on his way back from a knee injury, while Arsenal midfielder Fabregas is recovering from a broken shin. But Del Bosque named both players in his final 23-man squad for the World Cup and believes they will be 100 per cent fit for Spain's first match.

"Our doctors have complete confidence in them being ready and 100 per cent for the start of the championship," he said.

Del Bosque added: "There is a slight worry, but the information from them, from their doctors, and from our doctors, who have travelled to Barcelona to see Cesc and Xavi, and to Vigo to see Torres, is positive."
