Line-ups: Spain-Switzerland

Spain go with two centre-forwards for tonight’s World Cup dress rehearsal against Switzerland in Villarreal.

Iago Aspas and Diego Costa both start up top for Spain as they look to impress Julen Lopetegui before their World Cup opener against Portugal on June 15.

Elsewhere, no Real Madrid players feature due to their recent involvement in the Champions League Final, so Alvaro Odriozola and Cesar Azpilicueta line up in a makeshift defence.

Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets is also out with a stomach bug, so Koke partners Thiago Alcantara in the middle of the park.

These two nations will compete in Russia later this month and last met in South Africa eight years ago, when Switzerland ran out 1-0 winners in the group stage.
