The Euro 2012 champions have finally joined the team, among them Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Xabi Alonso, Alvaro Arbeloa, and Rual Albiol; Portuguese players Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe have also joined the team. 

Also, the Germans Mesut Ozi and Sami Khedira will join the tour that will debut the young players Nacho, Alex, Jese, Morata and Jesus.

The first friendly will take place on August 2 against the Los Angeles Galaxy; three days later they will face Santos Laguna. Their two last two matches will be against European Opponents, Milan on the 8th and Celtic on the 11th.
