Spain is known for playing the Barcelona’s style of "tiki-taka" offense. Though this will be expected by opponents, the variations of the tactic will prove that Spain remain favorites.
Lately, Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque has opted to use a “false nine,” with Cesc Fábregas in the striker position. This has worked for creating chances all around and may be the preferred option.
But La Roja have many different attacking styles that can be used in their tiki-taka plans.
David Villa could possibly be used as a traditional striker, which will cause opponents to play a more normal defense. But Villa and Fábregas are capable of changing positions, too, meaning defenders will have to stay sharp throughout entire games.
Spain also has various options on the wings for attacking, as well.
While David Villa could be used at the left wing, Andres Iniesta has proven that he is more than capable of manning the left flank. Iniesta creates more chances and gives defenders headaches.
On the right wing, David Silva is normally preferred. But with the good form of Pedro, either could be selected to operate on the right.
With so many options, Spain can come at opponents in different ways. Defenses will have to constantly adjust to what La Roja do, which will most likely mean great chances for Spain.
