Morocco vs Spain preview

Walid Regragui's men have been extremely impressive, playing with the kind of the energy that can hurt any team.

They boast a side full of footballers who play in Europe's top leagues and combine skill with physical ability, meaning this should be a real challenge for La Roja.

Spain are a rollercoaster of a team of whom it is difficult to know what to expect.
