Aupa Espanha y La Furia Roja!
So we will be playing with out the Barca, Bilbao and chelsea players... interesting.
I wonder how we will do with out Xavi, iniesta and company.
Confirmed starting XI
..................... Casillas ....................
Juanfran ... S.Ramos ... Albiol ... Alba
............. Bruno ... X.Alonso .............
..... Navas .................... Cazorla .....
..........Soldado ....... Negredo ..........
Hopefully Soldado bags in a few so that Torres starting in the Euro becomes unlikely.
It's been a while since I watched a friendly, Euro fever taking over. Let's see how Juanfran does. Because we need a fullback who can do something in the attack, which Arbeloa just can't do.
Seems like a pretty weak lineup.
Lol, too bad that one didn't go in.
So far it's good enough to keep the Serbs at bay and having the upper hand, we need Xavi and Iniesta to break up defenses though. It's mostly crosses from the flanks which so far haven't reached the desired player.
Given that Iraola is not going to make it due to health issues, Juanfran has probably locked up a spot in the squad so long as he doesn't implode in these friendlies.
Whistling isn't going to make that not be offside.
There is also no Silva or Mata in this lineup. It is basically our B Midfield.
IN: Adrian, Silva, Dominguez, Benat
OUT: Soldado, Negredo, Ramos, Alonso
Del Bosque seems to be just giving new players debuts rather than testing any Euro lineup. I am going to guess Javi Garcia and Isco will also be thrown out there later in the game to make debuts.
Torres is going to be the main striker in the team isn't he.
I just hope that he gives the others some time in the team when the starting midfielders play. Or perhaps Llorente can pick up a bit of scoring form.
Adrian should have done much better, at least get it on goal
I should tell him what to do more often. Adrian with our first goal 1-0.
Now score 4 more!
Or maybe Adrian is the answer
Also, I hope Navas gets to go to the Euros. I think he gives us a different dynamic that we might need.
That last striker position is getting murky. I have no clue who is going to get it.
Javi Garcia is warming up
I'd take one of the ballboys before Torres, I think Adrian is going home when the full list is announced though.
Watching Juanfran play, I'd rather see this defense:
Juanfran is just too green as a RB. I also would rather play Ramos at RB.
Silva and Adrian making the difference. 2-0
It would be pretty unfair to Adrian to send him home. I'd like to see him make the squad.
Lol, Juanfran is making want to see Arbeloa play instead.
