Georgia vs. Spain: Picking the Strongest Team to Triumph in World Cup Qualifier

Spain make the trip to Georgia on Tuesday for their first World Cup qualifier.

Vicente Del Bosque's side will be in high spirits following their convincing and expected 5-0 thrashing of Saudi Arabia last week, and there's a great deal of quality with which to put a strong starting XI together.

Midfielders are scoring for Del Bosque, while key figures are returning from injury; the road to Brazil is looking promising for the current world champions.

But with the quality and form of many in the Spain squad, should Del Bosque be faced with a selection headache?

Yes and no.

The depth of quality means Spain's natural possession-based game is never lessened in execution. But at the same time, Spain's regular starting XI is a winning side who really don't need too many tweaks.

The best move Del Bosque can make is to enforce slight changes and two or three personnel changes between games. This way, the momentum of the team is kept intact and each player can be given good roles in the side.

The opposition in Georgia means Spain will hardly be overexerted, but they really do need to start positively and take the three points when they're on offer.
