Official: Five Barcelona players start for Spain in World Cup opener vs Costa Rica

Spain’s 2022 World Cup campaign kicks off today as they take on Costa Rica in the first round of fixtures in Group E.

Five Barcelona players feature in Luis Enrique’s starting lineup, kicking off with Ferran Torres on the right wing. The former Manchester City man heads into the tournament in impressive form and will share the responsibility of the attack with Marco Asensio and Dani Olmo.

The beating heart of this La Roja side, undoubtedly, is Sergio Busquets. Lucho has stated his importance to the national side time and again, and today he starts as the defensive midfielder.

Arguably the biggest star for Spain, Pedri takes his position in midfield, with his partner-in-crime Gavi rounding off the centre of the park.

The last Blaugrana star to feature in this lineup is Jordi Alba at left-back. The veteran has been given the nod to start after Jose Gaya’s injury.

Aymeric Laporta is paired alongside Rodri in central defence, while Cesar Azpilicueta takes over the right-back position. Unai Simon starts over Robert Sanchez and David Raya in goal.

Barcelona trio Eric Garcia, Ansu Fati and Alejandro Balde are among the substitutes.
