THE SPANISH MAY FEEL HARD DONE BY - THEY DID CREATE THE OPPORTUNITIES AND WERE BRILLIANT IN THEIR OPENER AGAINST ARGENTINA AS WELL - AND LOST NARROWLY

THE RED STICKS DO NOT HAVE CAPTAIN MIGUEL DELAS WHO HAS FLOWN BACK TO SPAIN FOLLOWING AN INJURY - THEY ARE SLIGHTLY AHEAD OF THE FRENCH IN TERMS OF GOALS SCORED THOUGH (POINTS ARE EQUAL, MATCHES WON EQUAL, GOAL DIFFERENCE IS EQUAL - AS FAR AS THE CRITERIA FOR MAKING IT THROUGH TO THE KNOCKOUTS IS CONCERNED)

WHAT DO THE STATS TELL US?

23 CIRCLE PENETRATIONS BY SPAIN - 18 FOR THE FRENCH. 13 SHOTS ON GOAL FOR THE RED STICKS (THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE)- 6 FOR FRANCE.
