del Bosque uses 4-3-3 and heard him name It that way at least once, that's why Iniesta and Silva are put as SS.

That formation in the first post does not resemble what Spain has played like in this Euro at all.

In my formation i'm usin Cesc as SS and Silva and Iniesta as AMF. Xavi CMF and both Busquets and Alonso as DMF. Anyway some positions are not so easy to define and replicate ingame because of real Spain's playin' style...

nah, i use an internet program to create the formation www.pesgp.net and it uses the default KONAMI database, don't be bothered if some numbers (overalls) look a bit odd. :)

also I would move Xavi and whole midfield bit forward , with Xavi standing maybe on top of the circle as that is place where he's most of the time , don't know will that have much difference in-game , I just like to use Spain/Barca or teams who dominates possessions with high defense bit higher on pitch

Good to see Villa, and, call me biased if you like, but i feel De Gea has eclipsed Reina already... just that Reina has a good charisma and positive influence for the dressing room, whereas there isn't the need to disrupt dressing room harmony simply to accomodate a talented young keeper that won't get any time anyways. Just an opinion :) Looking forward to when De Gea debuts for La Roja.

If you don't put effort into your post, i won't put effort in my response.

Who does deserve #13? Koke or Juan Mata? Or maybe a forward (Llorente/Villa)? Will Thiago be part of the 23-men team (why is he #7?) Spaniards say it to me B-)

Spain need way more a Koke than they need a Mata.

Yet Mata will be the one to get the call-up for the World Cup.

Both of them will. I don't see how either of them discards the other.

Thiago is out due to injury.

Costa and Negredo would be the more logical options for strikers, it's unlikely Krusty will be fielding more than a single striker so two should be enough. I really don't think Villa or Llorente will make it, although Llorente did really well with his post-play in South Africa it's been four years since that and he's not as good as back then.

Mata... I don't really like Mata. I'm still amazed such sums of money have been paid for him in the EPL. Not saying he's not a really good player, but I simply don't have him in high regards.

My guess is for Krusty to stick to his usual 4-5-1, likely with Casillas as keeper and Azpilicueta - Piqué - Ramos - Alba in the back four. I don't know what's he going to do in the mid, Busquets - Alonso - Xavi would be the slowest midfield ever, Alonso has proven this season how much he struggles nowadays when playing more than a single match per week, so I'd use him sparcely and same for Xavi. I guess Pedro will get a spot as his energy is much needed and he always performs fine for the NT anyway. Krusty will need to use his bench proficiently if he wants to last long in the competition IMO. I'd probably stick to Silva as the pivotal player of the team but Krusty's never been a big fan of his.

BTW if Spain doesn't win it'll likely be due to Arbeloa's abscence.
