Ireland (4-4-2): Shay Given - Stephen Ward, Richard Dunne, Sean St. Ledger, John O'Shea - Aiden McGeady, Glenn Whelan, Keith Andrews, Damien Duff - Robbie Keane, Simon Cox
It's like beauty versus the beast, Skill and technique and velvet versus good ol' mettle and brawn and dirt. Spain starts with an actual striker this time and it's this little known guy called Fernando Torres. You probably have not heard of him. I think he does really well versus Championship-level competition, so I'm expecting goal, goals, and more goals.
