Spanish press concerned about choices

Spain's media on Monday expressed concern about weaknesses in the national side's forward line during their Group C opener against Italy which finished 1-1.
The online edition of El Pais was the most critical headlining its article on Sunday's match in Gdansk, northern Poland: "Spain off to a stuttering start."
"With Fernando Torres a symptom, Spain failed to get off to the start in Gdansk that they did in Vienna four years ago (when the team went on to win the title)," the newspaper said.
"It was more like the false start in World Cup 2010 against the Swiss (who won 1-0 - although they did go on to win the title)."
