World Cup 2014: Spain


Undoubtedly a serious candidate, host nation Spain will try to achieve the World Cup for the second time in its history (as in Japan 2006) thus matching Brazil who also has two trophies. As they are running without any senior-team titles over the last two years, the Iberians have to give joy to his people to keep the place of privilege that they hold not long ago.

With regard to why he is one of the favorites to win the title, the latest statistics speak for itself: the Reds took the Eurobasket in Lithuania which was played in 2011 and came runner-up at the 2012 Olympics in London, after losing in the final against the mighty United States.

On the other hand, the host will integrate Group A (who will play at the Arena City Stadium in Granada) with France, Brazil, Egypt and Serbia and Iran, which Spain will play the opening World Cup match on Saturday 30th August.

A factor to consider for the coach Juan Antonio Orenga is the physical situation of the defensive team leader, Serge Ibaka. The 24-year-old power forward from Oklahoma City Thunder fails in top condition by a calf injury. However, in his own words, his desire to be present means more than that drawback.

Finally, within the definitive roster there are the names of brothers Pau and Marc Gasol, the forward Rudy Fernandez, guards Ricky Rubio and Jose Calderon, and of course the skillful Juan Carlos "La Bomba" Navarro .
