The SPAIN FOOTBALL TEAM has 4 new additions (Valero, Soriano, Aduriz & Pablo Hernandez) to the squad after regular & important players like Xavi Hernandez, Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas, Jesus Navas & Pedro had to withdraw due to injuries.
Spanish National Soccer Team Selector & Coach Vicente Del Bosque is “redoing” his Football playing system in order to blend in the new members & adapt the Spanish Team to the “sticky” & difficult styles of both Lithuania & Scotland. The Spanish Sports press observing the training sessions have detected that Spain could revert back to a 4 – 4 - 2 system instead of the regular 4 – 2 – 3 -1 scheme & with FC Barcelona player Andres Iniesta doing the midfield role of Xavi Hernandez.

The observations have also given possible hints of a starting 11 team with the only doubts being upfront on who will support David Villa. If yesterdays intense training session is a guide the “starting 11 against Lithuania” may look something like this:
Casillas, Ramos, Puyol, Pique, Capdevila, Busquets, Cazorla, Xabi Alonso, Andres Iniesta, David Villa & (Aduriz or Fernando Llorente)
In form Valencia CF player Pablo Hernandez has put some "pressure" on Coach Del Bosque with a great practice game performance last night with 2 goals, thus “shouting out” for a place in the initial eleven.
