Three players from Real Madrid and three from Atletico Madrid will compete for the final four spots in Spain's squad for the European Championship.

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has announced a list with 19 players who will make it to France, leaving the final four spots available to the players who participated in Saturday's Champions League final between Madrid and Atletico.

Seven players from the Madrid clubs had been included in the preliminary list released two weeks ago, but Real Madrid's Dani Carvajal was ruled out of the tournament because of a muscle injury sustained in the final in Milan.

The six players vying for the final four spots are Madrid's Sergio Ramos, Isco Alarcon and Lucas Vazquez, as well as Atletico's Juanfran, Jorge ''Koke'' Resurreccion and Saul Niguez.
