Spain: The comeback victory over Mexico--capped by a 90th minute winner from the tournament's joint-top goalscorer Jese--was far nervier than Spain would have hoped, though Uruguay had to rely on a penalty with only seven minutes to play to seal their win over Nigeria. Hopefully Suso gets another start; as I mentioned in the recap of the Mexico match, Spain have looked much, much better with him on the pitch, even though he's playing in a far deeper role than we're used to seeing. It's all about Jese and Gerard Deulofeu at the front end, but Suso's pushed Spain along in the tournament, and there's little reason he should be left out of the eleven today.
