A new era dawns for La Roja after what was a disastrous World Cup campaign this summer in Brazil. Vicente Del Bosque’s side are, of course, the winners of the previous two consecutive European Championships as well as the World Champions of 2010; however, Spain’s group stage exit in Brazil, which saw shock thrashings at the hands of the Netherlands and Chile, has shown up a new-found fragility in the La Roja ranks that Del Bosque will be keen to address if his team’s decline is not to become irrevocable.
Macedonia will likely provide readily beatable opposition for the Spaniards as they bid to top a relatively straightforward qualification pool for France 2016; however, the result does not appear as forgone a conclusion as it would have seemed in previous years given La Roja’s recent vulnerability (they were beaten 1-0 by France during the week in a friendly). The game in Valencia on Monday night will give us a real insight as to how far the process of rebuilding Spain has come in the two-months since the squad’s poor showing in Brazil.

Spain Match Preview
A spate of high profile retirements after the Brazil campaign has left Del Bosque with a considerable restructuring job to co-ordinate in his efforts to get Spain to France 2016 in a strong shape. Xavi, Xabi Alonso and David Villa followed Carles Puyol into international retirement after the World Cup leaving the manager with a considerable experiential deficit in La Roja’s starting XI, particularly given Fernando Torres and Iker Casillas’ simultaneous steep decline’s inform.
With Gerard Pique, who asked to be excused from duty, and Andres Iniesta (knee) also absent, Spain’s squad has a somewhat unfamiliar look to it. Dani Carvajal, Mikel San Jose, Raul Garcia and Paco Alcacer all earned first caps in an underwhelming 1-0 defeat to France on Thursday. The withdrawal of Diego Costa, who completed a fifth appearance without a goal for Spain in that encounter, has resulted in another fresh face – Barcelona teenager Munir El Haddadi – being called up.
One can expect to see the Spaniards line up as follows: Casillas; Carvajal, Ramos, San Jose, Azpilicueta; Busquets, Fabregas, Cazorla, Koke, Silva; Pedro.
Even given La Roja’s diminished strength, then, Macedonia have a considerable challenge on their hands extracting any kind of result from the fixture. Macedonia suffered disappointing Euro 2012 and 2014 World Cup qualification campaigns, with Goran Pandev, widely regarded as Macedonia’s all-time greatest player, quitting the national team thereafter. Moreover, they have failed to earn a victory, or score, in their last four games.
Macedonia’s hopes of ending their goal drought do not look particularly promising. Striker Adis Jahovic has struggled for playing time since a recent move to Krylya Sovetov, and although Jovan Kostovski has been in good form for OH Leuven, his goals have come in Belgium’s second tier.
Spain and Macedonia have Ukraine, Slovakia, Belarus and Luxembourg for company in Group C.
