Spain is one of the 32 national team that will be participating in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. This is the team that in 2010 FIFA World Cup that was held in South Africa backed their defence heavily and outscored the other opponents with very little margin.
They were known to score not a maximum of 2 goals in the games they played and worn. In the Round sixteen matches they only had a 1-0 win margin.
David Villa was the man of the game as far as winning the 2010 FIFA World Cup was concerned but as today he is still not sure whether he will be getting a position into the 23 man squad for Spain under the leadership of La Roja.
Today, Spain’s leading top scorer is David Villa with a total of 56 goals and was also the top scorer in the 2010 FIFA World Cup for Spain where he netted 5 times.
It is with the victory associated to Villa that Spain will have to miss this coming 2014 FIFA World.
Spain will therefore find it very difficult and challenging to have the void left by Villa filled. In the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the usual 4-6-0 formation may be used by Spain at the start where no proper strikers will be deployed.
This formation will however need a player who will be given the mandate of scoring the goals. The type of formation Spain had during the 2013 FIFA Confederation Cup and 2012 UEFA European Championship where they had 4 strikers that were on board may be repeated in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Fernando Torres is expected to be one of the possible striker for Spain despite having bad times since he was signed to Chelsea in 2010. To date, he has only netted 9 times in 35 appearance when in the current season.
The other Star is David Villa who has had a very dull performance at Atletico scoring only 3 goals in a total of 38 games. The other key strikers that can be part of the 23 man squad include Fernando Llorente, Alvaro Negredo, Pedro and Diego Costa.
