Thiago joins Spain's midfield as they make one change for their World Cup group match against Morocco.

Spain head coach Fernando Hierro has made one change to his starting XI for this evening's World Cup Group B finale against Morocco.

Thiago has been given the nod in midfield, replacing Lucas Vazquez in the lineup.

Hierro has otherwise named the same side which defeated Iran 1-0 in the previous game, with Diego Costa leading the attack and Dani Carvajal keeping his place in the XI.

Khalid Boutaib leads the attack for Morocco, who are already eliminated from the tournament, with Hakim Ziyech, Younes Belhanda and Nordin Amrabat providing support from the frontman.

Karim El Ahmadi and captain Mbark Boussoufa have been handed central midfield roles in front of a back four comprising Nabil Dirar, Manuel da Costa, Romain Saiss and Achraf Hakimi.

Spain: De Gea; Carvajal, Pique, Ramos, Alba; Busquets, Thiago; Isco, Silva, Iniesta; Costa
Subs: Nacho, Saul, Koke, Rodrigo, Lucas Vasquez, Odriozola, Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Monreal, Aspas, Reina, Asensio

Morocco: Mohamedi; Dirar, Saiss, Da Costa, Hakimi; El Ahmadi, Boussoufa; Amrabat, Belhanda, Ziyech; Boutaib
Subs: Bounou, Mendyl, Benatia, El Kaabi, Fajr, Harit, En-Nesyri, Bouhaddouz, S. Amrabat, Carcela,
