Euro 2012 Quarterfinal 3
Spain vs. France
Saturday, June 23, 245 PM EDT
TV: ESPN2,, ESPN Deportes

The third quarterfinal is today, and Arsenal center half Laurent Koscielny is being thrown to the wolves, the wolves in this case coming in the guise of Spain's national team and former teammate Cesc Fabregas. The winner of this match will face Portugal in the first semifinal in four days' time.

Here are the lineups:

Spain starting lineup (4-3-3): Iker Casillas; Jordi Alba, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Alvardo Arbeloa; Sergio Busquets, Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernandez; Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas, David Silva.

France starting lineup (4-5-1): Hugo Lloris; Gael Clichy, Laurent Koscielny, Adil Rami, Anthony Reveillere; Franck Ribery, Florent Malouda, Yann M'Vila, Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy; Karim Benzema.

Also keep an eye on potential Arsenal target Yann M'Vila playing in the center for France. Also, laugh at Sergio Busquets, even though he's good.

Remember: no links to illegal streams, no pictures of height more than 300 (you can adjust this yourself), please always use a subject line, and above all, be kind to each other.

Enjoy the match.
