|Yellow card to Torres|
The interesting observation is the possible side-effects of tomorrows tough encounter. Spain has 5 players already with yellow cards. They are Jordi Alba, Arbeloa, Fernando Torres, Xabi Alonso & Javi Martínez, a yellow card to any of these players will mean they will miss the Quarter Final if Spain goes through.
If Spain manages to qualify themselves for the Q/Finals & in turn win to go into the semi-finals, all yellow card players will begin a clean sheet. The objective is to get to semi-finals without seeing a yellow card. Both aims in themselves will be a challenge.
