Spain vs. Netherlands will be the second match of the Brazil World Cup 2014 tournament. Ironically, it is also a repeat performance of the Africa World Cup 2010 final which gave Spain a World Cup victory.
This time around the Netherlands will be hungry for a rematch win. The game may also give way to some unforced fouls and errors as both teams bid for a win since their last meet.
Vicente del Bosque’s side is still one of the favorites to win the World Cup but Spain is not as strong as it was in South Africa 2010. The Netherlands may not be up to the mark this time around. But you can bet that it will be a 2nd day treat for those who followed the cup in South Africa.
The game is bound to be a surprise and a tough draw on Friday at Salvador’s Arena Fonte Nova.

Though both teams appear to carry similar weight going into the World Cup, they will want to come flying out of the box and this is one match you won’t want to miss.
Spain is still one of the best European teams although it has slacked off since winning the World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
Spain met with Brazil in the final of 2013 Confederations Cup,. However, they took a thrashing from Brazil which defeated Spain 3-0.
The defeat revealed Spain is not
unstoppable, which means the Netherlands should be able to regain the confidence to confront Spain with victory in mind.
Spain still tops the list in world rankings according to ESPN FC.
Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder are a goal scoring trio that has a reputation for being unstoppable; they will
continue to be a potent attack machine and constant goal threat on Friday.
This Salvador encounter is one of the best of the entire group stages and is not to be missed, as both sides will look to come flying out of the blocks in Brazil.
