Spain's qualifying match versus Georgia is an opportunity for many Spanish players to impress their manager before the next World Cup tournament begins in two years.

Santi Cazorla of Arsenal will be one player looking to continue his fine international form as Spain begins its first of five 2014 World Cup qualifying matches on Tuesday.

Let's look at three Spanish players who will shine in the team's match versus Georgia.

Santi Cazorla

Who is the better midfielder?

The Arsenal midfielder is in fine form for his club and country. In last week's 5-0 Spanish victory over Saudi Arabia in an international friendly, Cazorla started for manager Vicente del Bosque and scored the first goal of the match.

Cazorla will be a crucial part of the Spanish attack with his determination to go forward in the final third, and like the rest of his midfield teammates, he's a top playmaker.

Cazorla has a great chance to become an integral part of the Spanish World Cup squad during these qualifying matches, so he has plenty of motivation to shine against Georgia on Tuesday.

Xavi is arguably the best midfielder in the world and is one of the many pass-masters in the Spanish squad.

Xavi will feature in his normal playmaking role for Spain, but he's also an underrated attacking player and has scored several goals for Barcelona when he is aggressive in the final third of the pitch.

Expect Xavi to be the man of the match against Georgia and help Spain with his world-class skills and leadership.

Cesc Fabregas

The Barcelona midfielder hasn't played much for his club this season, but he should get a chance to play for Spain against Georgia.

Fabregas is one of the finest attacking midfielders in world football, and he would work very well alongside Cazorla in the attacking third of the pitch.

Even if he doesn't start, expect Fabregas to play a major part in the outcome of this match.
