Luis Enrique has already confirmed the 26 players who will travel to Qatar to represent Spain in the Middle East.

The majority of players in the 1-11 bracket are likely to start against Costa Rica, but others have retained their club numbers, including Jordi Alba (18) and Rodri (16) with Ansu Fati and Pedri curiously given the No.25 and No.26 shirts respectively.
Enrique’s starting team against Jordan is likely to be different to his World Cup XI with key players rested in Amman.
