Combined team of two International giants ahead of the game tonight
England travel to Estadio José Rico Pérez tonight to play ex-World Cup winners Spain in their first International friendly since qualifying for Euro 2016, and ahead of the game we look at the combined XI of the two teams.
GK: David De Gea – Spain
Superb for Manchester United last season and almost made a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, possibly even the best goalkeeper in the world right now, he would get into any international and club team.
RB: Cesar Azpilicueta – Spain
Despite Chelsea faultering at the moment. Azpilicueta is still a top defender and right-back and will comfortably get into this Spain side, and is head and shoulders above players such as Kyle Walker and Nathaniel Clyne at the moment to.
CB: Chris Smalling – England
Really on top form at Manchester United at the moment, finally coming good after taking a lot of stick in his early days at Old Trafford, he’s now an established top centre-back in the Premier League and is getting there at an international level too.
CB: Gerard Pique – Spain
He’s been at the top level for years and with Sergio Ramos injured, he’s always going to get into the side.
LB: Jordi Alba – Spain
Despite how impressive Ryan Bertrand has been this season, Jordi Alba’s experience will always earn him the nod ahead of the Englishman.
