How to Watch Spain v Italy Live Streaming:
Spain and Italy, two heavyweights of European football and early favourites for the World Cup, will get an early chance to draw first blood when they clash in Madrid later tonight.
The game will also the first time the Spanish National team has taken to the field of play since the sad passing of Luis Aragones in February.
The former national coach guided the country to their first major title in 2008 when he led Spain to the European Championship and his memory will be honoured when Spain, playing in their new all-black strip, will take to the field at the Vicente Calderon, home to Atletico Madrid, the club that Aragones played for and managed.
Rather fittingly, the Vicente Calderon is also home to Diego Costa, the Brazilian born striker hoping to make his Spanish debut.
Should be feature against the Azzurri, this will be the second time that Costa has made his debut against the Italians after playing for Brazil in a friendly last year.
The 21 goal hit-man has since decided to play for his adopted country Spain and is in line to make his debut after being included in the squad.
Spanish coach Vicente del Bosque is looking forward to seeing the striker in action and believes he will bring something to the team, telling reporters “He’s an unusual case, because he had never been called up before and because he was born in Brazil.
“But he’s a player who has been called up on the back of what he has achieved with his club and because we believe that he can help us. That’s why we’ve called him up; for no other reason.”
Costa inclusion came at the expense of Fernando Torres and David Villa after the out of form pair were left out the squad meaning that the striker will vie with Manchester City star Alvaro Negredo and Barcelona’s Pedro Rodriguez for a place up front.
Bayern Munich pair of Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez will be keen to make an impression in the final game before Spain name their world cup squad while Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta is rewarded for his fine form as he returns to the squad for the first time since the Confederations Cup.
Italy meanwhile will be without Roma midfielder Danielle De Rossi after he threw a punch at Inter star Mauro Icardi during Saturday’s goalless draw while Mario Balotelli is also absent with a shoulder problem.
In-form Ciro Immobile will hope to get his chance to impress after being named in the squad. The Torino man has scored 13 Serie A goals this season.
Both sides have shown mixed form since going unbeaten in the world cup qualifiers with Spain narrowly beat Equitorial Guinea 2-1 and losing 1-0 to South Africa in November and Italy drawing with both Germany and Nigeria.
This will be the fourth time that Spain and Italy have met in the last three years with the Spanish losing just once, in August 2011.
