Line-ups: France-Spain

Xavi Hernandez and Xabi Alonso return to the Spain starting XI for their must-win qualifier against France this evening.

The midfield duo are back after missing Friday’s draw with Finland through injury, meanwhile Nacho Monreal comes in after Jordi Alba had to pull out due to a pulled hamstring.

Vicente del Bosque has opted for an all-Barcelona front-three, with Andres Iniesta, Pedro and David Villa hoping to break down the home side’s defence.

Didier Deschamps meanwhile has given Real Madrid pair Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema a place in the team.

Spain: Valdés; Arbeloa, Piqué, Sergio Ramos, Monreal; Xabi Alonso, Busquets, Xavi; Iniesta, Pedro, Villa

France: Lloris; Jallet, Varane, Sakho, Evra; Cabaye, Pogba, Matuidi; Valbuena, Benzema, Ribéry
