Spain's lineups feature no surprises with the experienced trio of Xabi Alonso, Sergio Busquets and Xavi anchoring the midfield. Diego Costa has overcome the hamstring issues that plagued him late in the club season to start in the attack. It will be just his third cap for Spain since switching his nationality from Brazil a few months ago.
The Dutch will likely play in a 5-3-2 formation with three central defenders and two wing backs, but it's important to note that the players in their lineup could also setup in a 4-4-2. The attack should test Spain with Robin Van Persie up top, supported by Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben.
Spain (4-3-3-): Iker Casillas; Jordi Alba, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Piqué, César Azpilicueta; Xabi Alonso, Sergio Busquets, Xavi; David Silva, Diego Costa, Andrés Iniesta.
