SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: POSSIBLE STARTING LINE-UPS SPAIN - HOLLAND | WORLD CUP 2014

POSSIBLE STARTING LINE-UPS SPAIN - HOLLAND | WORLD CUP 2014

The FIFA World Cup in Brazil kicked off last night with Brazil winning Croatia in controversial fashion. Tonight the defending World Champions Spain play Holland in their Group B opener. A repeat of the 2010 Final with Holland having 6 still in the team from last time. A very defensive Holland is expected with up to 5 defenders to halt Spain with perhaps the added "touch" of some physical Football. All is fair in love & "football"...

Spain World Cup 2014 line-up

While Dutch Selector Van Gaal is pretty much open about his intentions, his counterpart Vicent del Bosque is keeping some cards up his sleeve. The SPANISH FOOTBALL NATIONAL TEAM starting XI line-up looks settled except for the forward. The question remains will Spain start with a pure centre-forward or a false centre-forward. Three names are up for one possible position: Torres, Diego Costa or Cesc Fabregas. 


I will speculate on what I think could be the starting line-up for Spain against Holland tonight:

Casillas, Azpilicueta, Pique, Ramos, Jordi Alba, Busquets, Xabi Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta, Silva & Diego Costa

However, as said it is my speculation, as Torres or Cesc could take the place of Costa.

For Holland their starting XI line-up looks fairly clear:

Cillessen Janmaat, Vlaar, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Blind; De Guzman, Sneijder, De Jong, Robben, Van Persie.


Everything indicates that Holland will place a 5-3-2 system, if so, ultra defensive.

Good luck to Spain!
