Spain vs Japan Starting XI

It’s still all for grabs in Group E. Spain takes on Japan tonight at 7:00 pm GMT, at Khalifa International Stadium. Here’s the confirmed Spain vs Japan Starting XI.

With a stomping 7-0 victory over Costa Rica and a 1-1 draw with Germany, Spain sits atop Group E with 4 points.

Still work to do for La Roja, as they need a draw to qualify for the Round of 16. However, a defeat still could qualify them, depending on the other game.

On the other hand, a win will guarantee Japan a spot in the last 16. If they draw against Spain, they need to depend on the other result.

Japan stunned Germany in their opening game by 2-1 but lost to Costa Rica by 1-0.
