Spain: Pepe Reina, professional goal-celebrator.

Uruguay: After serving a ban during the crucial win over Venezuela earlier in the week, Luis Suarez will return to the starting lineup for Uruguay as they start their Confederations Cup campaign. Spain will prove to be a hell of a litmus test for the Uruguayans, who'll hope to build off their win in Venezuela and carry momentum through the brief tournament in Brazil. They're still shaking off the disappointment of a dismal 2012, but a strong showing in Brazil would go a long way towards setting the table for a final stretch of World Cup qualifying that'll see them face the current top three in the CONMEBOL table. Sebastian Coates will be there, but likely won't feature much so long as Uruguay's first-choice pairing is fit.
