Much need not be said about the statistics of the Spanish team as the quality of stars is unmatched, the strategic possession and tactics have made Spain invincible through the years. The football wizards Iniesta and Xavi, the assists of David Silva, the perfect finishing of Costa, pace of Jordi Alba, Quick dribbles of Pedro, scoring charts of Villa and the canon shots of Alonso will all be on display at Arena Fonte Nova. The defensive wall made by Ramos, Alba and Pique will be prove very hard to be defeated.

The Netherlands runners up of 2010 finals, will be charging with aggression to sneak a goal at early stages. however, the defensive zone will have the most difficult job safeguarding the zone. The midfielder Sneijder and Guzman will be looking to create a very fast counter attack and assist the athletic sprinter Robben along with Van Persie will try to capitalize on his run and snatch away valuable points.
