No striker for Spain. Torres is going to be affected when they need him later this tournament. De Rossi at the center of a back 3 is OK to play against this Spanish lineup. I think Spain comes off a little worse in this setup though I think De Rossi is going to struggle positionally against the darting runs from the midfielders of Spain.
Not sure why del Bosque made this move. We shall see. Makes goals even more at a premium. Both sides will make changes in second half.
Interesting that Ramos has his arms around Casillas and accepts putting it around Xavi. Would have been better to have him put it around Pique.
