In a match that has been generating a lot of buzz, France battles Spain in the third of our four quarter-finals. The French have has a roller-coaster run so far: held to a draw vs. England (despite looking like the better and sharper side), then a convincing win over Ukraine in the rain, then a loss vs. Sweden. Spain started off with a draw vs. Italy, then won two straight against Ireland and a tough Croatia team. The absence of David Villa clearly leaves them a little less deadly up front, but they have numerous options to keep up the attack.

Winner of this one takes on Portugal in one semi-final. Line-ups aren't announced yet, but we can post them in the comments as soon as they become available. For Spain, the key question is who starts up top: Torres, who had a great game vs. Ireland but is still an inconsistent choice; Fabregas, in that weird False-10 formation, or Fernando Llorente, who doesn't have as much international experience but who might be the most complete pure striker the Spaniards have.

As always, be polite and non-threatening in the comment section. Thanks.
