Specially, Spain’s midfield is pretty much strong in the presence of Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Andrés Iniesta, Fabregas, David Silva and Sergio Busquets.

Iniesta has just returned to training after shaking off his thigh injury. So, Spain coach may decide to rest him for the Switzerland fixture. Torres and Fabregas are also ready for the match after recovering from their injuries. So, Torres and David Villa are most likely to from Spain’s forward line up.

Switzerland has some injury worry ahead of the Spain encounter. Basel striker Alexander Frei is going to sit out for the Spain match with an ankle injury, while West Ham midfielder Valon Behrami is doubtful for the match as he is yet to fully recover from the muscle problem.

However, Switzerland has some quality players in their squad. Their midfield features Gökhan Inler and Hakan Yakin, while former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos would be deployed in defense with the task of restricting Spanish attacks.
