(Sporting Alert) — Andres Iniesta, David Villa and Fernando Torres all start on the bench for Spain in tonight’s World Cup qualifier game against Belarus at Dinamo Stadion.
Spain boss Vicente del Bosque commented that Iniesta was almost certain to play in the game, which means he’s one of the name on the list to come in during the second half.
However, Villa has been a frequent regular for Barcelona since coming back from sugary, while Torres continues to be on and off on form with Chelsea – which means they could sit all night on the bench.
In the meantime, Arsenal’s playmaker Santi Cazorla has been rewarded for his fine form with the Gunners in the Premier League with a starting place.
Manchester City’s David Silva and Barcelona pair Pedro and Cesc Fabregas all start as well.
