Pedro In Spain Starting XI; Torres On Bench

Vicente del Bosque has opted for the same starting line up that defeated Germany in the semi-final...
Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has named his starting eleven for the World Cup final, and there is no place for striker Fernando Torres, with Barcelona star Pedro retaining his place in the team.

The side is unchanged from the eleven that managed to see off Germany 1-0 in the semi-final on Wednesday evening.

Torres will take his place on the bench alongside Cesc Fabregas, meaning Spain continue with their Blaugrana front four of Pedro, Iniesta, Xavi, and David Villa in the lone striking role.

More on the Dutch starting eleven as soon as we receive it.


Casillas; Ramos, Pique, Puyol, Capdevila; Xabi Alonso, Busquets; Pedro, Xavi, Iniesta; Villa
