Here we go again. Can Croatia stop the Spanish juggernaut? Can Ireland surprise Italy and play the role of spoiler? The first two days of the final round of group matches have produced some solid drama. We can only hope for more of the same today. As far as players going, I have Alba, Mandzukic, and Strinic playing today. I'm taking a chance and sticking with Ozil and his 5 points as my captain (making it 10 points total from him). We'll see if I hold my nerve in that regard tomorrow with Benzema facing Sweden.
Who do you have playing?
Who do you have going through to the knockout stages?
Here are the starting line-ups:
Croatia: Pletikosa, Vida, Corluka, Schildenfeld, Strinic, Vukojevic, Rakitic, Srna, Modric, Pranjic, Mandzukic
Spain: Casillas, Pique, Ramos, Arbeloa, Alba, Iniesta, Xavi, Alonso, Busquets, Silva, Torres
Ireland: Given, O'Shea, Dunne, St. Ledger, Ward, McGeady, Whelan, Andrews, Duff, Keane, Doyle
Italy: Buffon, Abate, Barzagli, Chiellini, Balzaretti, Pirlo, Marchisio, Thiago Motta, De Rossi, Di Natale, Cassano
