Spain coach Vicente del Bosque reverted to the attacking configuration deployed in the 1-1 draw against Italy, with Cesc Fabregas expected to play as a 'false nine' centre-forward after being selected ahead of Fernando Torres.

Fabregas will be flanked by Iniesta and David Silva, while central midfielder Xabi Alonso wins his 100th cap with La Roja.
