It's not very often that the reigning world and European champions head into the defence of their first major championship without an out-and-out striker up front. However, that is exactly the case for Spain ahead of the European Championships this summer.

Following the 5-0 win over Venezuela this past Wednesday, it's more clear than ever that Vicente del Bosque faces a major selection headache as a whole host of his fellow countrymen try to book their seat on the plane to Poland and Ukraine.

The 61-year-old has a number of players to choose from, each of whom can offer something vastly different from the other.

Del Bosque has often opted to back long-standing members of his squad and trust them to come good even when in a poor run of form, but with so many choices in both midfield and attack at his disposal, it is entirely possible we may see some big-name omissions from the Spanish squad list come June.
