MADRID, Spain -- Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has delayed naming his final squad for next month's World Cup to give injured Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa a chance to recover.

Del Bosque was supposed to reduce his preliminary list of 30 players to 23 on Sunday.

Instead, he has picked a 19-player squad for a friendly against Bolivia on May 30 that doesn't include any Atletico or Real Madrid players after they clashed in Saturday's Champions League final, which Real won 4-1.

Del Bosque says "nobody is discarded" for the final squad that he has until June 2 to name according to FIFA regulations.

Diego Costa appeared to re-injure his right hamstring in the final and came off after nine minutes. Atletico defender Juanfran Torres also hurt his foot in the match.
