Both players were substituted against Nigeria because of minor muscle problems, and could be replaced by Fernando Torres and David Silva. Italy’s Alberto Gilardino is expected to take the place of injured striker Mario Balotelli, who will miss the rest of the tournament with a thigh injury. Ignazio Abate is also out, but Italy are optimistic that Andrea Pirlo will recover from a calf strain to play.
Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says Italy will want revenge for their defeat in the Euro 2012 final but on current form it looks more likely that the world and European champions will rub salt into Italian wounds. Adversity is often said to bring out the best in the Azzurri, who thrive on being written off by critics, and there is no doubt they’ll begin as underdogs in Fortaleza. Their only striker proven at this level, Mario Balotelli, has been ruled out through injury, as has right-back Ignazio Abate, while key midfielder Andrea Pirlo may not be fully fit.

Prandelli has tried to sidestep questions over the eight goals Italy have conceded so far, insisting “four of them should not have been given,” but he concedes his side must raise their game.
Spain are the best team in the world, They are almost impossible to beat, he says, With humid conditions again expected in Fortaleza, fatigue is also a concern for the coach: “We have to get into our heads that we will suffer against Spain, that their possession of the ball will be higher than ours”.
