Prior to Spain's World Cup opener against the Dutch, it seemed that Vicente del Bosque had only a small number of selection issues to iron out in his world champion La Roja outfit.

That's not the case anymore, however.

After their unfathomable annihilation at the hands of Louis van Gaal's men last Friday, Del Bosque has a raft of key decisions to ponder as his side prepares to take on Chile on Wednesday.

What will worry Del Bosque most is that Jorge Sampaoli's team will set up to attack the Spaniards in the same manner as the Dutch. With their direct and aggressive approach, the Chileans possess the capacity to exploit the same weaknesses that were at fault in the defending champions' 1-5 collapse.

Across the following slides, we examine all of the selection headaches facing Del Bosque ahead of Wednesday's pivotal encounter with Chile.
