Spain World Cup 2014 Squad Predictions

The World Cup is not far away! Love or hate football, most people enjoy watching the World Cup, and getting in the spirit of it. I love the World Cup, and always have done. My team is Spain, and has been for about 20 years, since I was a kid. People always ask me why, and I don’t have a real answer, I just always loved Spain since USA ’94.

The Spain squad is a difficult thing to pick, but I had fun guessing and predicting which players will be picked. The 30 man provisional squad will be named tomorrow, and it’s more of a question of who will miss out, will there be places for the young Spanish players, or will all the old tried and tested get their place in the squad. This is what I have gone for:

Goalkeepers – Iker Casillas, Reina, De Gea

Defenders – Albiol, Pique, Juanfran, Javi Martinez, Sergio Ramos, Azpilicueta, Jordi Alba, Carvajal, Iñigo

Midfielders – Iniesta, Xavi, Fabregas, Koke, Mata, Alonso, Busquets, Carzola, Silva, Navas, Thiago, Isco, Suarez

Forwards – Pedro, Diego Costa, Llorente, Negredo, David Villa

The squad will then be broken down into the final 23. Vicente Del Bosque may name 4 goalkeepers in the 30 and cut 1, if that is the case I would imagine Diego Lopez, but I could not find space for 4 keepers, I picked an extra outfield player :p It will be interesting to see not only what forwards get picked but how many; Del Bosque is famous for picked only 1 or 2 “number 9’s” even in an entire squad, whereas most will take 4 or even 5.

In my squad there is sadly no room for Torres, or players like Bartra, Alberto Moreno and Javi Garcia.
