Spain and Italy have won all of the things since 2006. They are probably good, although Italy is real shaky in back, and Spain isn't maybe what they were four or two years ago. They are, however, still very good.

There are no Arsenal players in this match.

Spain: Casillas - Arbeloa, Ramos, Pique, Alba - X.Alonso, Busquets - Silva, Xavi, Iniesta - Cesc.

Yes, you're seeing that right: Cesc will play as a false nine this match.

Italy: Buffon; Bonucci, De Rossi, Chiellini; Maggio, Motta, Pirlo, Marchisio, Giaccherini; Cassano-Balotelli.

Giaccherini will be playing more or less as a left wing-back, which is making people on twitter laugh out loud.

Remember: be kind, picture height maximum of 300, and always use a subject line. And no illegal streams.
