Players who could make a difference for Spain in Russia
The World Cup is nearly upon us and if you are confused which team you should be cheering for, maybe, you should root for Spain. The 2010 World Cup winners Spain are one of the most exciting sides and have some top quality players in their ranks. Here we take a look at the players who could make the difference for Spain.
Real Madrid's mid-field ace Isco
Isco is, undoubtedly, one of Spain's most gifted mid-fielders and we are talking about a team that boasts the likes David Silva and Iniesta. These players can weave past defender but lack the final killer touch. Expect plenty of goals to come from Isco. If Spain opt to play with a false 9, then Isco is Spain's most prolific mid-fielder in front of goal.
Real Madrid's captain Sergio Ramos
Ramos is one of the top defenders in world football but for Spain, he is more than just a defender. The Spanish team lacks height which might be a problem to win headers from corner pieces. This is where the raging Spanish bull Sergio Ramos comes to play. A fantastic header of the ball, expect a goal or two from the central defender.
Manchester United's David de Gea
The Premier League Golden Glove winner David de Gea is one of the hottest properties in world football. His lightning-fast reflexes make sure that nothing can get past him. With Spain expected to play a possession-based football with a high defensive line, defenders are bound to be caught out of position and the last line of defense David will have to stand tall.
