World Cup Football Boots: Spain
Fifa Ranking: 2
Path Ahead of the World Cup
Spain were phenomenal in qualification – winning 10 games out of 10 to top their group. Their spectacular record in qualification and status as European champions means that Spain enter the tournament second in the FIFA World Cup rankings
David Villa and Andreas Iniesta
Newly-inducted Barcelona Striker David Villa has carved himself a reputation as one of the deadliest strikers anywhere on the globe. Not just at club level – his 38 goals in 59 games is utterly phenomenal – and after signing for the La Liga champs, you can bet Villa’s confidence will be on an all-time high.
Andreas Iniesta is widely heralded as one of the finest centre-midfielders in the world right now. Whilst not bagging many goals for his county, Iniesta’s ability to spot runs and play perfect passes all game long makes him an indispensable part of the Spanish machine.
Vicente del Bosque has already secured his place in Spanish football history after leading them through a record-breaking qualifying campaign, and will look to further enhance his reputation with a World Cup win.
