Vicente del Bosque makes 10 changes to his Spain XI for tonight’s friendly against Romania, with only Gerard Pique surviving.
Iker Casillas starts in goal ahead of Sergio Rico, who had been touted by the Coach at his pre-match Press conference, while Mario Gaspar, Jordi Alba and Marc Bartra partner Pique in almost an all-Barcelona back four.
In midfield, Del Bosque opts for a double pivot – as opposed to his usual trio – with Sergi Roberto debuting in central midfield alongside Koke.
Up top sees Paco Alcacer leading the line, former Barca duo Pedro Rodriguez and Nolito on the wings and David Silva playing in the hole.
Romania, meanwhile, go with La Segunda striker Florin Andone, who plys his trade for Cordoba, and ex-Elche and Zaragoza defender Cristian Sapunaru at right-back as one-time Sevilla forward Raul Rusescu is a substitute.
