Spain XI vs Macedonia: De Gea; Carvajal, Piqué, Ramos, Bernat; Busquets, Cazorla, Isco; Mata, Silva, Diego Costa
De Gea hasn’t played a competitive game this season and neither have been in Vicente del Bosque’s starting XI very often, so it’s great to see them starting tonight.
Louis van Gaal will be pleased to see De Gea in action because it means he’ll have some match rhythm when he comes back to Manchester after the international break.
Mata has found himself frozen out of Spain’s squad simply because of how many midfielders Vicente del Bosque has at his disposal but he’s in the team tonight which he’ll be delighted with.
United fans will simply be hoping for neither player to pick up an injury tonight against Macedonia with the big game against Liverpool coming up on Saturday.
