In-form Negredo keen to take his chance

World champions Spain can seal their place in next year’s World Cup in Brazil with just a point when they host Georgia in Albacete on Tuesday.

The task appears a simple one against a side ranked 97 in the world given La Roja have never lost a World Cup qualifier on home soil.

However, Vicente del Bosque’s men have come in for some criticism for their lack of cutting edge in recent games and Friday’s 2-1 win over Belarus did little to convince the doubters.

Del Bosque sprung a surprise by starting Michu up front on his debut against the Belarussians, but it wasn’t until Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo was introduced that they started to pose a more serious threat.AFP
