Belgium vs Spain by Gilles
Match was normally planned on 17/11/15 as practice match for Euro 2016, but due to terrorist attacks in Paris on 13/11/15, the game was eventually cancelled.
Both teams start the preparations for WC 2018 qualifications with a new headcoaches and assistants. For Belgium this is former Everton coach Roberto Martinez, his assistant Graeme Jones and assistantcoach for strikers Thierry Henry.
Selection Belgium: Courtois, Mignolet, Sels, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Lombaerts, Vermaelen, Meunier, J. Lukaku, Kabasele, Witsel, Nainggolan, Fellaini (out), Dembele, Defour, Dendoncker, Debruyne, T. Hazard, E. Hazard, Carrasco, Mertens, Mirallas, R. Lukaku, Benteke, Batshuayi, Origi
Mirallas returns into Belgium squad after not been selected for Euro 2016, Martinez knows Mirallas from peroid with Everton. Lombaerts returns after not been selected for Euro 2016, due to injurie during practice peroid before Euro2016, etc. Thorgan Hazard also join the squad together with Sels, Defour and Dendoncker; who got a selection after Felliani announced to not be ready to play. Ciman and Denayer didnt get a selection after been selected for Euro 2016.
Spain start with new coach Lopetegui.
Selection Spain: De Gea, Reina, Adrian, Ramos, Pique, Bartra, S. Roberto, Carvajal, J. Martinez, Alba, Azpilicueta, Saul Niguez, Asensio, Busquets, Thiago, Koke, Silva, Mata, L. Vazquez, Alcacer, Nolito, Morata, Costa, Vitolo
I think both teams have alot of individual quality, but both teams disappointed at Euro 2016 so they got new coaches. We cannot expect major difference in first game, the coaches will start from the team left behind, becos they dont want to lose hard in first game with totally new system. I see both teams to score in this friendly game.
