World Cup 2014: Our Pick Who Will Lift The Trophy

The announcement of the Spanish squad proved to be something of a reminder for those writing off their chances:

This team are going to have a first XI bristling with quality, an almost embarrassing amount of strength in reserve and in Del Bosque, one of the finest managers the game has ever seen.

They will most likely maintain a core of experienced players, but the likes of Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Diego Costa are all genuine match-winners on their day.

The squad certainly won’t become stale, either. In defense, Cesar Azpilicueta will give the team a studiousness and a dynamism that will be most welcome, whilst Costa will bring an aggressive, robust edge to their attacking play.

Plus, they’ll keep the ball. Exceptionally well. And if you’re a team chasing the ball around in the South American sun for 70-percent of the 90 minutes, it’s going to be extremely difficult to get the better of this Spain team.

The only thing hampering this side is whether—after three major tournament wins in a row—the hunger and the fight to go again. Nonetheless, Spain still have everything to win in Brazil and cement their legacy as the greatest international team of all time.
