More interestingly, Sergio Ramos, Pique, Isco, and Iniesta will face Cristiano Ronaldo. Both teams are expected to sail through even though Morocco and Iran are no pushovers. Portugal is far behind as a team against Spain, but Portugal’sI ability to grind out results and talisman Cristiano Ronaldo along the ranks they are a formidable team. They have young prospects like Bernardo Silva and Goncalo Guedes alongside veterans like Pepe and Quaresma.
Spain hasn’t had the best of 2014 World Cup or the Euro 2016, but they are a team full of superstars and can play beautiful football. Iniesta will play his last International tournament, but the World class midfielder can prove to be the difference. Isco and David Silva will form the midfield and wings with Asensio and Vazquez waiting on the bench. Spain may play Costa or Rodrigo up front and introduce Aspas as the game goes by.
