WAL-W vs SPA-W Dream 11 Team: Stunned by Canada to finish Pool A in second place, Spain look to enter the semi-finals the hard way
Spain Vs Wales Cross-Over 2 FIH Women’s Pro League Best Dream 11 Team
Entering the tournament as the highest ranked side and widely expected to enter the semi-finals as table toppers, the dramatic land of the league gave us the biggest surprise when Canada ended in first position in Pool A. It leaves world number 7 ranked Spain to do things the hard way and sweat it out in an extra match against Spain today.
Playing the second cross-over match of the day, Spain will be looking to assure themselves of a semi-final spot when they take on Wales. Ranked 27 in the world, Wales themselves haven’t had too bad a season, restricting South Africa to a 2-2 draw in their opening Pool B match.
While Wales will make things tough for Spain, the top billed team are just way too strong a unit to lose this one. They should win this one easily and move ahead into the pivotal semi-finals where they’ll be sitting one step away from a spot in the Olympic Qualifiers slated for later this month.
The 8 goals for Wales while Spain have managed to score a massive 19. It’s a startling difference, and this sparkling bit of figure is exactly what pegs Spain as the winners for this one. Wales have shown they can crumble under pressure as well and Spain will take full advantage of this to win this match with ease in the end.
Goal-Keeper for WAL-W vs SPA-W Dream 11
Wales have a fine goal-keeper, keeping things steady at the back for her side and we are going to bring her into our side. Rose Thomas is our selection for this department and we expect her to come up with some solid saves from the carnage she’ll come up against.
Defenders for WAL-W vs SPA-W Dream 11
Her side’s top scorer, Lola Reira is a goal scorer who loves marauding up the field and putting in riveting displays all the time. With 5 goals to her name, she’s been heavily involved in the entire game style of her side, a pivotal and dependable figure.
From Wales we have picked up two defenders despite Spain’s extremely strong attack given that we want to pick up the maximum number of attacking options from Spain. If Wales are to make a match of this one, things need to be gotten right from the backline ad we do see Leah Wilkinson and Joanne Westwood doing this for them.
Midfielders for WAL-W vs SPA-W Dream 11
In comes the battery from Spain in the form of Georgia Oliva, Beatrice Perez and Crisitne Guinea. This trio is one of the finest in the tournament in the middle of the park, adamantly encapsulating a sublime attacking threat whenever they venture forward and will leave Wales struggling to cope up with them.
