Sergio Ramos is at centre-back with Gerard Pique, while Alvaro Arbeloa is at right-back. As expected, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas all start while Pedro plays out wide in a very Catalan midfield.
For Nigeria, Brown Ideye, Joseph Akpala and Ahmed Musa all start in an attacking forward line, while Sunday Mba is also chosen in midfield in what is an adventurous team selection from Stephen Keshi. Fegor Ogude is chosen to partner John Obi Mikel in midfield.
Spain starting line-up (4-3-3): Victor Valdes; Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Arbeloa; Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta; Pedro, Fabregas, Soldado.
