Spain make ten changes for Iceland friendly as Morata keeps place in attack

Spain have released their starting line-up ahead of their friendly with Iceland.

After returning to Barcelona for the first time in 18 years, La Roja are back in A Coruna for the first time in over a decade to play at the Riazor.

Luis Enrique has made a habit of shuffling his pack as Spain manager and has made ten changes to the side that won 2-1 over Albania.

Striker Alvaro Morata is the only player to keep his place. Yeremi Pino assisted Ferran Torres on Friday, while Dani Olmo got the winner – they flank Morata in attack.

In midfield, Koke and Atletico Madrid teammate Marcos Llorente are joined by Carlos Soler, while the full-back area is covered by experience in Cesar Azpilicueta and Jordi Alba. Unai Simon is in goal, with Aymeric Laporte partnered by Hugo Guillamon. It’s just Guillamon’s second cap, with the first coming in a match fulfilled by the under 23 squad due to Covid concerns ahead of the Euros.
