EURO 2012 | SPAIN - IRELAND | POSSIBLE STARTING 11 LINE-UP

The SPANISH FOOTBALL TEAM is back in action tonight with its second EURO 2012 Group C match against the Republic of Ireland. Important game as a win will help settle the defending European Champions after starting "cold" ( & lucky some add ) with a 1 - 1 draw against Italy last Sunday.

Also the Spanish National Coach Vicente Del Bosque received a barrage of criticism for his starting 11 against Italy, & in particular for not starting with a true forward up-front as a main reference. Coincidently the "experiment" was "saved" thanks to the Cesc Fabregas with his goal-equalizer, the player put on to act as the "false forward".

Most are expecting that Del Bosque has learnt the lesson & will not adventure into new untried territories against Ireland. Having said this, the question arises who will be the chosen Spanish Forward: Torres, Llorente or Negredo. This is assuming that Del Bosque will put a forward, as the man has not ruled the "Italian idea" out, as amazing this may sound to his critics.

Spanish Sports & Barcelona based daily "Sport" publishes their hypothetical Spanish Team ( & Irish ) starting 11 & they bet on Fernando Torres as a starter & they also bet on Pedro in for Silva. This last prediction is hard to accept as it means Silva will be left out & the latter is currently in fine form. But anything is possible.

As I always say pre-match & with starting 11 line-ups splashed around media, they are speculations & are definitely not the 100% confirmed teams. The confirm will usually arrive an hour or so before the match. 

Until then, stay tuned.
