Spain and Holland will get events in group B underway when they meet in a repeat of the 2010 Final.
On that occasion a goal three minutes from the end of extra time from Andres Iniesta sealed a first world cup for the Spanish and they will be out to make history once by becoming the first team to win two back-to-back European championships and World Cups in just six years.
As it stands Spain headed to Brazil as the European and World Champions in addition to having the current Europa and Champions league holders in their domestic league.
The strength in depth and experience in the Spanish squad is one of the reasons why they are tipped by many to make even more history and become the first European team to win a South American world cup.
The tournament is likely to be a swansong for the loyal servants Iker Casilas, Iniesta, Xavi, Xabi Alonso and David Villa however it is the emerging talents of Koke and Diego Costa that could fire Vincente del Bosque side to victory.
Costa is the forward one fire. The 36 goal forward inspired his club to La Liga success and with a big money move to Chelsea looming on the horizon he will be keen to make an impression.
The Atletico Madrid forward has seen his end of season hampered by hamstring injuries and was forced in his sides crucial clashes with Barcelona in the league and Real Madrid in the Champions league however he will be fit to take his place in the starting 11.
The burly forward however featured in Spain’s final warm up against El Salvador and appears to have overcome the injury.
While Spain will have Costa, Holland will be hoping that their star forward, Robin Van Persie is fit to play.
The Manchester United forward, set to Captain his country at a World Cup for the first time, is struggling with a groin injury but should be fit to play.
Van Persie has taken over the armband from Wesley Sneijder and having failed to make his mark at major international tournaments to date he will keen to fire Holland to glory.
Sneijder meanwhile has performed at the highest level having scored 5 goals in their run to the 2010 final and the Galatasaray attacker will join an exclusive club this Friday.
The 30 year old will become only the sixth Oranje player to break the 100 cap mark, emulating the achievements of Edwin van der Sar, Frank de Boer, Rafael van der Vaart, Giovanni van Bronkchorst and Phillip Cocu.
