Spain is the defending World Cup champs and needs a victory to survive. Don’t expect Spain to go down without a fight. Players to watch on Spain include Diego Costa, a Brazilian native who is recovering from a thigh injury. Other key players include Andres Iniesta, midfielder Cesc Fabregas and defenders Gerared Pique and Jordi Alba.
GAME 3: CROATIA VS. CAMEROON – 6 PM
Game three features two teams hoping to rebound from frustrating starts to the 2014 World Cup. Cameroon hopes to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Mexico and Croatia hopes to bounce back from its opening loss to Brazil. Considering Mexico’s epic defensive performance vs. Brazil yesterday, Cameroon’s offense may be much more potent that they appeared in their opening game. Croatia’s offense will rely on Midfielders Ivan Rakitic, Luke Mordic and forward Mario Mandzukic to upset the host nation.
