Brazil x Spain: probable starting line-ups Confederations Cup final 30 June 2013
Brazil take on Spain on Sunday in what is regarded as the ‘dream final’ of the Confederations Cup. Despite doubts over Paulinho (flu), and knocks to Thiago Silva and David, coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is expected to put out the same starting eleven that he has fielded throughout the campaign.
Vicente del Bosque has a full strength squad to choose from with Cesc Fabregas and Roberto Soldado recovering from muscle injuries.
Brazil are unbeaten in 10 matches, and have won their last five. Spain’s record is even more impressive: 24 wins and 5 draws going back to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
