Spain v FYR Macedonia 

Competition: UEFA Euro Qualifying, 
Match date: 8 September 2014
Kick Off Time: 19:45 BST - 18:45 GMT

After the World Cup humiliation and the defeat against France in the midweek, Spain start their European Championship qualifications against Macedonia at home. Spain are big favorites on this match and also they are favorites for winning the Group C with Ukraine, Belarus, Macedonia, Slovakia and Luxembourg as their opponents. Like I mentioned, Spain lost against France a couple of days ago and also they failed to score a goal. Loic Remy scored the only goal for France in the second half. That means Spain have three defeats on the last four matches. Here is the result of the match:

04.09.2014. France - Spain 1:0 - Friendly
23.06.2014. Australia - Spain 0:3 - WC 2014
18.06.2014. Spain - Chile 0:2 - WC 2014
13.06.2014. Spain - Netherlands 1:5 - WC 2014

The coach Vincente del Bosque will be missing lot of players that we are used to see in the national team. Carles Puyol, Xavi, Xabi Alonso and David Villa have retired, Iniesta is injured and Gerard Pique asked to be excused from duty.

On the other side, Macedonia suffered disappointing 2012 European championship and 2014 World Cup qualification campaigns. The situation now is slightly better and the team has young and talented players who can play good football. Macedonia will be probably fighting for the fourth position in the group with Luxembourg as the weakest team in the group. They have played two friendly matches against China in June this year and they failed to score on both matches. Here are the results:

22.06.2014. China - Macedonia 0:0
18.06.2014. China - Macedonia 2:0
