Logic dictates that the biggest challenge that Vincente Del Bosque and Spain will face against Finland is remembering that they actually have to play the game first before meeting France. That's not meant to be a shot at Finland but but lets be honest, they shouldn't trouble Spain and the only thing that could bring down La Furia Roja is themselves.
Del Bosque himself has made this clear in various interviews calling on his team to focus and secure three points against Finland on Friday.
Spain should have nearly a full squad available for selection with Xavi Hernandez the only player expected to be out as a precaution to save his hamstring for the France match. Word out of camp is that Cesc Fabregas will play in a false nine role with Pedro and David Silva in the attack.
Finland will be without key midfielder Alexei Eremenko who is serving a red card suspension after getting sent off in Finland's 1-1 draw against Georgia.
