Spain vs. Georgia in a World Cup 2014 Qualifier kicks off Tuesday at 1.30 p.m. The match can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Spain are the reigning World Cup and European champions, and are the first side to win three major tournaments in a row. Many have touted them as being the greatest team of all time, and if they go on to win the 2014 World Cup more doubters could be converted.
However, their qualification is far from guaranteed and they have a lot of hard work to do. On Tuesday they face a potentially tricky trip to Georgia. Although Georgia will be massive underdogs, they will be in front of their home crowd and will do everything they can to stop Spain dominating possession and will look to disrupt their play at every opportunity.
Spain though are in fierce form following their immense 4-0 win against Italy in the final of Euro 2012. Vicente del Bosque's side has stretched their unbeaten run to 13 games with victory last month against Puerto Rico and on Friday with a 5-0 win over Saudi Arabia.
Spain showed just how deep the talent runs in their squad, and in their last rout only put out three players from their Euro 2012 finals side. Fernando Torres captained the side with his 100th cap, and David Villa made his comeback, scoring from the penalty spot.
Spain will be looking to get their qualification campaign off to a good start and face a potentially difficult group that contains France as well as Belarus and Finland.
"The World Cup does not start in 2014, but now, here against Georgia in Tbilisi. To defend the title that Spain won in Johannesburg we need to first qualify for Brazil," Del Bosque said in AS.
"The players know that we are starting a tough qualification phase, where we cannot afford to be complacent because a mistake could be a problem."
Georgia have already claimed three points in Group I, having beaten Belarus 1-0 at home on Friday. Coach Temuri Ketsbaia began with a young side in their opening contest and looks set to do the same against the World champions.
"We have plenty of young, creative players who can run fast and have good stamina," said the former Newcastle United forward, according to Uefa.com.
