David de Gea has been chosen ahead of Iker Casillas tonight and starts for Spain in their friendly against Netherlands.
Manchester United’s undisputed no.1 deserves to play given his fantastic form under Louis van Gaal and he’ll be keen to leave a good impression in what is sure to be a hotly contested tie.
Daley Blind also starts for the Netherlands in the left-back position which he has played in so impressively for Man United against Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool. Up against a mobile and intelligent Spain side, he’ll have to make sure he has his wits about him.
Netherlands starting XI: Vermeer; Janmaat, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Willems; Klaassen, Blind, Sneijder; Narsingh, Huntelaar, Memphis
Spain starting XI: De Gea; Carvajal, Piqué, Albiol, Bernat; Mario, Fàbregas, Cazorla; Pedro, Juanmi, Isco
