Cesc Fabregas will start up front for Spain in their Euro 2012 opener against Italy as coach Vicente Del Bosque picked a team without a recognised striker at the Arena Gdansk.
Italy coach Cesare Prandelli also sprung a surprise picking Juventus winger Emanuele Giaccherini in the wing-back role while veteran Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi lines up as expected in a back three between Juve pair Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
