EURO 2012 | POSSIBLE SPAIN - PORTUGAL STARTING 11 LINE - UPS

Big day in European Football with the first semi-final of the 2012 Euro Championship scheduled tonight. World & current Euro Champs SPAIN play neighbours PORTUGAL which has grown in strength & form as they have progressed. The star player for Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo has also lifted a few gears & is clearly the main danger for the Spanish defense, but not the only.

Said all this, the SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAM is no slouch side & are still the favorites with World Class players in every line of the field & with the Best midfield combination in the World. This thus raises the now habitual question, which will be the SPANISH TEAM starting 11 line-up against Portugal?

The honest answer is, who knows. Spanish National Team Coach Vicente Del Bosque has been hiding his cards lately with the use, or no use, of a Center Forward, that is Torres or Cesc, with the last being used as the now popular term the "false forward".

Spanish Sports daily "Sport" has created this interesting diagram were they speculate on what they believe will be the Spain starting 11 line-up against Portugal tonight. By looking at it, I presume that the journalists have taken the past line-ups into account & put their money on a relative safe bet. The diagram speculates that Spain will start with the same line-up as with Italy & France, without a true forward.

Possible Portugal-Spain starting 11 

As mentioned this is pure speculation & other local media are expressing the possibility of another possible line-up, in this case, the inclusion from the start of Pedro & forward Fernando Llorente. Not a bad idea if you think that Pedro is fresh & quick as he showed against France & Llorente can use his bulk size & heading power to disturb & make life difficult for the Portuguese Central Defenders.

Either way, top match ahead with a 50 - 50 chance for either team. Not to be missed!
