Torres out of starting lineup, 6 subs available for each team

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque announced his starting 11 against the United States friendly today: Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Piqué, Albiol, Capdevila, Bruno, Xabi Alonso, Cazorla, Silva, Villa y Llorente.

It looks like Llorente, the Athletico Bilbao striker took over Fernando Torres'  striking spot. Other noticeable absentees from the Spanish starting lineup are Xavi (injured), Puyol (injured), Iniesta (bench), Busquets (bench), and Pedro (bench).

But do not fret Torres and Iniesta fans. Word is each team will have six substitutions available (it's normally only 3) and that both coaches will be using all their subs to get in as many players as possible.
