Spain vs Germany lineups: Predicted XIs, confirmed team news and injury latest for World Cup 2022 game

Spain head coach Luis Enrique has more decisions to make in attack ahead of facing Germany in a high-profile World Cup clash.

Alvaro Morata recovered from flu to coming off the bench and score La Roja’s seventh, and final, goal against Costa Rica, and is now in contention to start against the Germans. Ferran Torres, Dani Olmo and Marco Asensio hardly struggled in their opener, though.

With Enrique using all five of his substitutes with 20 minutes still on the clock, it’s unlikely he will make too many changes for Sunday night’s clash.

For Germany, they need to win and the potential return of Leroy Sane would be a huge boost. Jamal Musiala, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry would consider their place under threat, and it remains to be seen if Kai Havertz deserves to start up front.

Spain predicted XI: Simon; Carvajal, Laporte, P Torres, Alba; Pedri, Busquets, Gavi; F Torres, Asensio, Olmo

Germany predicted XI: Neuer; Kehrer, Rudiger, Schlotterbeck, Raum; Gundogan, Kimmich; Gnabry, Muller, Musiala; Havertz.
