Line-ups: Australia-Spain

Vicente del Bosque has rung the changes as Spain face Australia in their World Cup dead-rubber this afternoon.

La Roja and the Socceroos are already out of the tournament following two losses in their opening matches.

As such, the Coach has brought in several new faces for their last World Cup 2014 match.

Last season’s Napoli pair Pepe Reina and Raul Albiol start, as does Atletico Madrid’s Juanfran at right-back.

Arsenal attacker Santi Cazorla comes into the midfield alongside Koke and Xabi Alonso, whilst Fernando Torres and David Villa play up front, supported by Andres Iniesta.

Australia meanwhile, will be without Tim Cahill through suspension, and start instead with Matthew Leckie and Adam Taggart in attack.

Australia: Ryan, McGowan, Davidson, Spiranovic, Wilkinson, Oar, Bozanic, Jedinak, McKay, Leckie, Taggart

Spain: Reina; Juanfran, Albiol, Ramos, Alba; Alonso, Koke, Cazorla; Iniesta, Torres, Villa
