As far as Hierro’s team news is concerned, we can expect only one change in the starting XI that featured vs Iran. Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara should replace Real Madrid’s Lucas Vazquez.

Diego Costa is Spain’s top scorer in the competition and he should start as the lone center forward up front. Behind the former Chelsea man, the likes of Silva and Isco should start in the attack in the wide positions.
