“We got to the final of the European Championship and we have the possibility to get to the final of the Confederations Cup, which is a big motivation,” Marchisio said. “Spain haven’t changed much. We know their style of play perfectly. We sometimes change our tactical system, but we always play in the same way.”
Spain are bidding to complete their collection of senior international titles, having previously claimed Olympic gold on home soil at the Barcelona Games in 1992.
The winners of today’s game will contest the final against either Uruguay or hosts Brazil, who faced off in Belo Horizonte yesterday.
