England vs Spain Preview:

This mouth watering encounter comes from Wembley today as England host Spain in an international friendly. Spain are the WC and European Champions and have amazing talent in all of their players. England have pace and a strong defence which was lacking during last year's WC. They got to the last 16 but lost 4-1 to Germany. England's players have been surrounded by controversy for many years and defender John Terry's racism claim is the latest one. He will not captain the team and they may be affected by this. Spain will want to win this match but it will be hard for them will England's strong defence. Expect many shots and short passes.
