Torres Starts: Spain v Bolivia World Cup Warmup Live on ESPN3

( — Fernando Torres starts for Spain in tonight’s international friendly World Cup 2014 warmup against Bolivia at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Torres, who has been struggling with his form, has been given another chance to impress boss Vicente del Bosque, who has delayed naming his team until next week.

Xavi starts in the midfield alongside Santi Cazorla and Ander Iturraspe, while Torres, Juan Mata and Pedro lead the attack.

Pepe Reina has been selected over David De Gea to start in goal, while Andrés Iniesta, Cesc Fábregas, David Silva, Sergio Busquets and young Gerard Deulofeu are all on the bench.

Silva initially was named in the starting lineup, but was replaced by Mata when the changes came back before kick-off.

Spain is still without several first team players, including Sergio Ramos, David Villa and the injured Diego Costa.
