Spain the 2010 world champions struggled to defeat in their last group stage game of the tournament as Japan proved to be worthy opponents. Although Spain managed to qualify from the section. They now aim for glory playing their brand of football.

La Roja have not been bad defensively and they will have to show their traditional defensive resilience. Attack wise they will be attacking.

Morocco have a fully fit squad to choose from.

As for the Spanish, they too have men fully fit.
