Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque is certain midfielder Andres Iniesta will be ready for Wednesday’s Group H clash with Switzerland.
Iniesta injured his thigh during the European champions’ recent 6-0 rout of Poland, and has not been training with his team-mates in recent days.
However, Del Bosque insists the Barcelona man will be in his starting line-up to face the Swiss.
“Iniesta will play and he will be in the starting line-up,” Del Bosque declared.
“(On Monday) he will train with the ball and there are still 72 hours left.”
