Interesting times in Paris. Thanks to their hilarious 1-1 draw at home to Finland on Friday, defending world champions Spain find themselves in real trouble in Group I. They're going into a match against France -- no slouches, as they demonstrated by getting a point off these same opponents earlier in the qualifying campaign -- requiring a win in order to control their own destiny in the group. A draw would see the hosts keep their two-point cushion; a Spain loss would result in it ballooning to five. Oh, and Jordi Alba's out for this one.
No pressure, or anything, Spain.
