Xavi was invisible the first game and hence why he didn't play this game.
The bigger gaffe in my view was not playing Cesc and Cazorla. Once Cazorla came in they had some life. Cesc can play that faux 9 quite well. Costa obviously isn't healthy.
del Bosque was trying to be the smartest man in the room instead of playing his best eleven.
And nice win for my Croatian boys. Good game just get out of the way and build some confidence heading into the match against Mexico. Some big misses though by Rakitic and Mandzukic.
