David Silva has FOUR arms. FOUR ARMS!!!! Run away now, England.

Anyone who doesn't think that England are going to be thoroughly demolished by Spain today is somehow a bigger optimist than Robert. Phil Jones has to deal with Xavi. Just read that sentence again, will you? Glen Johnson and Joleon Lescott are in defense. Have fun with Davids Silva and Villa, guys.

Spain, meanwhile, are missing Carles Puyol. Really looks to have weakened them. They are likely huddling together in terror in the dressing room as we speak, wondering just how they're going to take down this strong English side. Well, that or simply saying their prayers that none of these guys break off any of their body parts.


England Starting XI: Joe Hart; Glen Johnson, Phil Jagielka, Joleon Lescott, Ashley Cole; Phil Jones, Scott Parker; Theo Walcott, Frank Lampard, James Milner; Darren Bent

Spain Starting XI: Iker Casillas; Alvaro Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba; Xavi, Sergio Busquets, Xabi Alonso; Andres Iniesta, David Silva y David Villa
