Spain vs England - Competition: International Friendly

Spain team enter the clash on the back of six consecutive victories, having ensured a title defence next summer by topping their qualifying group with 27 points from a possible 30, five points clear of Slovakia and eight ahead of Ukraine. In  their most recent friendly they won 2-1 at home to Costa Rica.
Ramos and Juanfran have withdrawn from the squad after they were injured in Diego Costa was recalled after missing Spain's last two qualifiers but Nolito and Morata are expected to start up front. Andres Iniesta is reportedly a doubt for the fixture, which could see Cesc Fabregas or Santi Cazorla come into the side.

England team breezed through their qualifying group with maximum 30 points as they won all the qualifying matches! They are unbeaten in 15 matches since losing to Uruguay during the World Cup last summer. Recent friendly international results comprise of two wins and four draw, including a 1-1 in Italy and 0-0 against Rep. Of Ireland.
Hodgson is without James Milner, but Tottenham's Eric Dier has earned a call-up for the first time. Premier League top-scorer Jamie Vardy suffered a knock against Watford last weekend and he is doubtful. Wayne Rooney will sit out the match but will face France on Tuesday instead. Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge remains a long-term absentee and the likes of Walcott, Ings and Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out through injury.
The Spanish team has won 10 of its last 11 home games. They have won three of the last four internationals with England, losing the last meeting in November 2011 at Wembley.
