Whichever nation can win this fixture will be greatly aided in their quest to finish first in their group, which is hugely important for qualifying. At this point, a repeat of last October could be on the cards as Italy try to thwart and block a rampant Spain.

FORMER VALENCIA footballer David Villa has been recalled to the Spanish national team for the next series of global fixtures. It will be replayed on Sunday.

"We believe and hope to go to the World Cup". It will depend on how the players are.
