Predicting the Spain Starting XI to Face Haiti | Bleacher Report

hi-res-147233995_crop_northGoalkeeper: Iker Casillas

Rejected by Jose Mourinho in favor of Diego Lopez, who doesn’t even make the Spain squad, Iker Casillas will be excited to have linked up with the national team.

Del Bosque has always made San Iker his No. 1. His lack of games at club level recently make him even more likely to start this weekend, as his manager looks to give him some playing time ahead of the Confederations Cup.

Defence: Cesar Azpilicueta, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba

Three of la Roja’s back four pick themselves; Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba. That will certainly ring true when Spain start the Confederations Cup against Uruguay, although Raul Albiol or Nacho Monreal may be used in the friendlies leading up to that match.

On the right it is an intriguing battle between the two A’s for the fullback position—Alvaro Arbeloa and Cesar Azpilicueta. The former is well known in the national team’s setup, while the latter is only recently emerging as a squad regular. Expect the Chelsea man to start. via | Bleacher Report
