Starting XI: Spain v Netherlands
Teams: Spain v Netherlands
Date: 12 June 2014
Venue: Arena Fonta Nova
It's a repeat of the final fours years ago, as Reigning World Cup Champions, Spain, take on the Netherlands in their opening group game at the Arena Fonta Nova.
The Spanish are still favourites to lift the trophy once again, while Louis Van Gaal's men are expected to be among the final eight teams.
Vicente Del Bosque's side have enjoyed a good run in their build-up to this opening encounter, having won five of their last six international friendlies, which included a 1-0 win over Italy.
La Roja will be looking towards Strikers, David Villa and Diego Costa to bang in the goals, with Villa ending up as joint top goal-scorer in 2010 with five goals.
On the other hand, The Dutch are certainly underdogs in this tie, with their defence causing the most concern, as this will be the first World Cup for all the defenders in the Dutch squad.
The Netherlands' preparations for the tournament weren't smooth as many predicted, with Van Gaal's men only winning two of their last five international friendlies.
While, Van Gaal will be hoping Robin Van Persie will fire to Oranje to victory, the Manchester United striker bagged 11 goals in during the World Cup qualifiers.
