In the world of football, it really doesn’t get more David and Goliath than Thursday’s encounter between Spain and Tahiti in the Confederations Cup.
Vicente del Bosque’s Spain is arguably the best national side the world has ever seen, whereas the national side from the island of Tahiti only has one professional player in its ranks that it can count on.
In their first matches in Group B, Spain was a class above Uruguay, while Tahiti lost 6-1 to a jet-lagged Nigerian side that was deprived of a slew of starters and that rarely ever needed to get out of first gear in order to dictate the run of play.
Whichever way you look at it, Thursday’s game is bound to be an extremely one-sided affair.
Here are the five players to keep an eye on.
