Line-ups: Australia-Spain

Vicente Del Bosque has made a number of changes for Spain’s final World Cup game, with Pepe Reina replacing Iker Casillas among them.

Juanfran, Raul Albiol, Santi Cazorla, Fernando Torres and David Villa all start for the dead rubber against Australia.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Javi Martinez, Pedro Rodriguez, Sergio Busquets and Diego Costa drop out, as does Casillas.

La Roja’s chances of getting out the group were ended by defeat to Chile last week and all that rests on the meeting with the Socceroos is to avoid the ignominy of finishing bottom of the table.

Australia are also out after losing to Chile and the Netherlands and talisman Tim Cahill misses the match through suspension.

Ange Postecoglou names a strong side without the New York Red Bulls forward, with Adam Taggart leading the line.

Australia: Ryan; McGowan, Spiranovic, Wilkinson, Davidson; McKay, Jedinak; Halloran, Taggart, Oar; Bozanic

Spain: Reina; Juanfran, Ramos, Albiol, Jordi Alba; Cazorla, Xabi Alonso, Koke; Iniesta, Torres, Villa
