The Spanish Football Team Coach Del Bosque said yesterday in his press conference that he has the Spanish Team starting line-up already in his mind & will tell his players mid-afternoon today. The Spanish press has a "fair" idea but with the only unknown of who will be the Spanish Team forward: FERNANDO TORRES , ALVARO NEGREDO or FERNANDO LLORENTE.
Latest speculation puts Torres in the front seat, but as said, at this stage this is only speculation as is the total line-up itself. Spanish Sports media "Sport" has made the above info-diagram to put forward their "bet" on the Spanish Football Team starting line-up. According to "Sport" the starting 11 maybe:
Casillas, Arbeloa, Pique, Sergio Ramos, Alba, Busquets, Xabi Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta, Silva & Torres.
Mentioned this, we all will have to wait for a final confirmation before the game, just as much from Spain as from their rival Italy.
