NAVAS AND PEDRI
Keylor Navas of Costa Rica will be essential to his team’s success. He is one of the finest goalkeepers in the history of the game.
Whereas Spain will benefit from Sergio Busquets (experience) and Gavi (youth), who are expected to pose a lot of difficulties for the opposition. Plus, they have midfielder Pedri, a special player who can play as a wide playmaker.

My Prediction – Spain 3 – 0 Costa Rica
Costa Rica will manage to restrict Spain for a while, thanks to Navas. However, the Spanish attack will be too hot to handle for them.
