ANDRES INIESTA TO REACH HIS 100TH GAME WITH SPAIN

The Spanish National Football Team plays its last match this afternoon against Australia in Group B of the 2014 World Cup. A match that gives the team the opportunity to "clean" their disastrous image & win back some lost pride. It is also a "trap" as Australia are super keen to defeat the reigning World Champs & go back home on a high, while Spain psychologically is low with some internal problems flowering over these last days.

According to Spanish Team Selector & Coach Vicente Del Bosque he is going to give some "lesser" players a chance to have a run & at least participate in this World Cup edition. Already some names have been mentioned that will sit things out: Casillas, Pique, Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernandez & perhaps Cesc Fabregas. All these players have been in the spotlight these past days as elements in the Spain Team failure, or that perhaps they end their time with the National Team. All speculation off course, as Coach Del Bosque has not officially given his starting XI & the "ugly atmosphere" within the Spanish camp is rip with daily rumours.

One player who looks like definitely getting a run is ANDRES INIESTA. If he does start he will receive his 100th International Cap with Spain. Fine achievement & well deserved as he is possibly one of the few players that has not been put in doubt during this World Cup. Congratulations crack!
