Group E of the 2022 World Cup is interesting as it includes two former champions in Germany and Spain. While Germany is earlier in action against Japan, Spain will start their campaign by meeting Costa Rica. Spain had a period of absolute dominance, during which they won two Euros and a World Cup, but since then their drought has lasted far too long. Their current squad has some good personalities playing for big clubs but once again it will be up to Luis Enrique to let them play as a team. They did well in the Nations League campaign but failed to lift the trophy. Their opponent Costa Rica doesn’t often make it past the group stage, but they have considerable experience in the main event. Spain v Costa Rica will be broadcast on the Sports18 network and streamed on the Jio Cinema app from 21:30 IST. Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi’s viral chess picture gets over 37 million likes and becomes the second most liked picture on Instagram!
Ansu Fati should start for Spain as Luis Enrique is counting on youth to get the results. Ferran Torres is another exciting newcomer in the starting XI while Alvaro Morata leads the attack. Sergio Busquets is at the end of his career but desperate to end his trip to Spain on a high. He will again have his Barcelona teammates Gavi and Pedri in the middle while Pau Torres and Aymeric Laporte take care of the defence.
Costa Rica have Keylor Navas in goal and he should expect a busy day at work considering Spain are fluid in attack. Bryan Ruiz will keep the midfield going while Joel Campbell is another experienced name in the starting XI. Although young, Anthony Conteras has his coach’s full support as he starts in the attacking third for Costa Rica.
