Sweden – Argentina
England – Brazil
Spain – Uruguay over 2,5
both attacking oriented teams, Spain very strong always (no matter there is no Soldado, Torres) while Uruguay attack Suarez-Forlan-Cavani
Netherlands – Italy
New-look Netherlands could be in for a difficult task when they take on Italy at Amsterdam ArenA, with the Azzurri arriving at full strength.
Following the he disappointment that was the Euro2012, Louis van Gaal take over the reigns and immediately introduced a plethora of talented, but pretty inexperienced players.
Such an approach produced instant results as Oranje won their first four2014 World Cup qualifiers, although they were pretty fortunate to win their only high-profile encounter, at home against Turkey.
Having rode their luck for much of the friendly draw against Germany, Netherlands will attempt to show some improvement in their next warm-up match, although that might prove to be a problem with some star players against missing.
Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben, Rafael van der Vaart and Maarten Stekelenburg have all been overlooked, whereas Michel Vorm was forced to withdraw because of injury.
Daley Blind, Ola John and Jonathan De Guzman are hoping to make their international debuts against one of world’s top sides.
In spite of the important missings
Probable starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Krul – Van Rhijn, Martins Indi, Mathijsen, Blind – Strootman, Clasie – Kuyt, De Guzman, Lens – Van Persie.
Italy needed just one major tournament to return to old glory days, with team’s showings at the Euro 2012 doing their country proud.
While the Azzurri defied all odds to reach the final, it was their outstanding attacking displays that earned them praise from pundits all over the world.
Italy have since continued where they left off, picking up ten points from first four 2014 World Cup qualifiers, although they did lose their last friendly game to France.
Juventus duo Giorgio Chiellini and Claudio Marchsio miss out through injury, whereas their teammate Leonardo Bonucci has been dropped due to the lack of discipline.
Sebastian Giovinco has withdrawn because of a thigh problem, leaving Mario Balotelli and Stephan El Shaarawy as the most likely attacking pairing.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-1-2): Buffon – Abate, Barzagli, Ranocchia, Santon – De Rossi, Pirlo, Florenzi – Montolivo – Balotelli, El Shaarawy.
