Van Gaal Magic: Spain's Turmoil Means this Star Should Start

Javi Martinez BayernManchester United fans will be absolutely delighted to see their new boss derail the World and European champions in style last night.
The repeat of 2010 World Cup final was expected to be a close contest but what happened was something no one expected.
Spain took the lead thanks to a controversial penalty awarded. Alonso stepped up and scored.
The champions did have a brilliant chance to double the lead when Iniesta found David Silva with a wonder through ball but the City star tried to chip it in the net which did not work.
From that point onwards there was only one team, Netherlands were magical and Spain were a disaster in defense to concede 5 goals.
Spaniards got caught on the counter with no real protection in front of their back four. From now onwards, they must start Javi Martinez as the holding midfielder. The former Athletic Bilbao star is one of the best defensive mid around.
The 2010 combination of Busquets and Alonso did not work this time. Adding to that, the legendary captain Iker Casillas was having a nightmare of a night as his blunders ensured that Spain were thrashed.
With Chile winning their opening game against Australia 3-1, Spain have no margin for error and losing more points may mean they are out of the World Cup.
The champions must win their remaining two games to qualify and even then it is likely that they will face host Brazil in the next round.
