Spain-Costa Rica: schedule and where to see the debut of La Roja in the World Cup in Qatar

The Spanish team wants to start off on the right foot against the theoretical Cinderella of the group


Spain is 48 hours away from making its debut in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. It will do so against the theoretical Cinderella of the group, Costa Rica, but the history of La Roja and the World Cups anticipate a tough match. The premieres in the World Cup are not easy for the great favourites: first day, nerves… And Spain is not good at it. He has gone three consecutive World Cups without winning in his debut. The last victory in the premiere dates from Germany 2006 when they beat Ukraine by 4 goals to 0.

The debut of Luis Enrique’s team will catch more than one at work, and that the schedule has been adapted as much as possible to European football. They will debut at 7:00 p.m. in Qatar, at 5:00 p.m. in Spain. It will be the only group stage match in that time slot, since the matches in Germany and Japan are scheduled for 10 pm local time -8 o’clock in Spain-. Remember that between Qatar and Spain there are two hours difference.

possible alignments

Luis Enrique will put all the meat on the grill. The eleven will have nothing to do with the one seen last week in Jordan, plagued by substitutes and with many rotations.
These are the eleven that the coach will choose a priori: Simón; Carvajal, Eric, Laporte, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Gavi, Pedri; Ferran, Asensio and Morata.
