The first match for Spain in Group B will be against Holland on the 13th of June in Salvador de Bahia. Spain will then play its second game against Chile in Rio de Janeiro on the 18th of June, while the last Group match for Spain will be against Australia in Curitiba on the 23rd of June. The interesting extra news piece from this Group is that the final "second placed" Nation will play the Winner of Group A which could be Brazil as everyone is expecting.
From the Spanish Team perspective the team that everyone was wishing to avoid is Chile & destiny has put the latter in the same Group as Spain. Chile has a very solid outfit with an extraordinary midfield lead by Arturo Vidal ( Juventus FC ) with pressures & a talented forward line lead by Alexis ( FC Barcelona ).
Thus the countdown definitely begins. Spain vs Holland 21.00 hrs Spanish time the 13th of June 2014. Spain has some hard work ahead to reach that date fresh, concentrated & in their best possible form.
