Atletico Madrid will kick off their pre-season tour in Australia tomorrow with a friendly against Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League.

Here’s the squad that Diego Simeone is taking to Oz:

Goalkeepers: Jan Oblak, Carlos Marin, Angel Bernabe
Defenders: Diego Godin, Filipe Luis, Stefan Savic, Lucas Hernandez, Sime Vrsaljko, Theo Hernandez, Javier Manquillo, Emiliano Velazquez
Midfielders: Tiago Mendes, Saul Niguez, Gabi, Thomas Partey, Diogo Jota, Amath Diedhiou, Juan Moreno
Forwards: Fernando Torres, Oliver Torres, Rafael Borre, Hector Hernandez, Caio Henrique

Notable absentees include Juanfran, Jose Gimenez, Koke, Yannick Carrasco, Augusto, Antoine Griezmann, and new signing Nicolas Gaitan.

So if you’re wanting to see Gaitan, you’ll need to wait. But new boy Vrsaljko will be there, as will Saul, Gabi, Fernando Torres, and Oliver. How do you think Simeone will set his team up against Spurs? Any players in this group you’re particularly keen to see in action?
