Villarreal, the club with most players in the squad

The Yellows, with four footballers, is the club which has the most players in the national team. Only once before have more Yellows players been named in a La Roja squad, when in May 2011 Vicente del Bosque called up Cazorla, Joan Capdevila, Bruno Soriano, Carlos Marchena and Borja Valero.
