keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and defensive midfielder Asier Illarramendi.

If Spain were missing key players like Sergio Ramos, Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba and Andrés Iniesta in the previous clash with Macedonia that ended in a 4:0 win, now all of these players will come to Skopje. We can’t be wrong if we say that Spain will come with their best possible squad.
