ANDORRA LA VELLA, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Andorra named a 20-man squad on Wednesday for their opening Euro 2004 qualification group eight matches against Belgium and Bulgaria over the next week.

The team from the tiny Pyrennean principality are the rank outsiders in a group that also contains Croatia, Estonia and Bulgaria. They play Belgium on Saturday and Bulgaria next Wednesday.

Although they have won two full internationals against Belarus and Armenia in the last two years, Andorra lost every game in the qualifying phases for both Euro 2000 and the 2002 World Cup.

Goalkeepers: Koldo Alvarez (FC Andorra), Ferran Pol (Horta)

Defenders: Txema (FC Andorra), Toni Lima (Gava), Roberto Jonas (Santa Coloma), Jordi Escura (JD Asco), Alain Motwani (FC Andorra), Juli Fernandez (Santa Coloma), Daniel Ferron (Santa Coloma)

Midfielders: Julian Lucendo (Santa Coloma), Oscar Sonejee (La Seu d'Urgell), Justo Ruiz (FC Andorra), Genis Garcia (La Seu d'Urgell), Josep Ayala (Santa Coloma)

Forwards: Emiliano Gonzalez (FC Andorra), Manuel Jimenez (La Seu d'Urgell), Juli Sanchez (Balaguer), David Buxo (FC Andorra), Fernando Silva (FC Andorra), Marc Pujol (Sant Andreu).
