The reigning world and European champions make one change to their side that beat Belarus in Minsk on Friday, with Santi Cazorla the player left out by Vicente Del Bosque

Vicente Del Bosque has introduced Andres Iniesta back into Spain's starting XI for their clash with France, with Santi Cazorla making way for the Barcelona attacker.

The Spain coach makes no further changes to the side that beat Belarus 4-0 on October 12, with Sergio Busquets remaining at centre-back alongside Sergio Ramos. Cesc Fabregas keeps his place in attack alongside David Silva and Pedro, the latter of whom scored a fine hat-trick in La Roja's previous match.

France have made a handful of changes to their starting XI, after they lost 1-0 to Japan in a friendly on October 12. Franck Ribery returns in attack at the expense of Olivier Giroud, while Etienne Capoue and Moussa Sissoko make way for Maxime Gonalons and Yohan Cabaye in midfield for the away side.

Patrice Evra also returns to the starting line-up for Les Bleus, with Gael Clichy the man replaced by the Manchester United left-back.

Spain (4-3-3):
  Casillas; Arbeloa, Busquets, Ramos, Alba; Xavi, Alonso, Iniesta; Silva, Fabregas, Pedro

France (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Debuchy, Koscielny, Sakho, Evra; Gonalons, Matuidi, Cabaye; Ribery, Benzema, Menez
