They have also been compared to the much-admired Brazil team of 1970. Unfortunately for the Netherlands they now hold the title of team to play in the most World Cup finals without winning.

With the World Cup upon us again this year, Spain is looking to retain their title. Unlike hosts Brazil, they do not receive automatic qualification. They were placed in UEFA qualifying group I along with France, Finland, Georgia and Belarus. Only the team to qualify in the top spot is guaranteed a place in the finals. With 20 points Spain occupied 1st place, ensuring the fans an opportunity of wearing the Spain World Cup soccer jersey in Brazil this summer.

The 1st round of the finals kicks off on 12th June. The 1st stage is the group round. To decide the groups each team is placed in a pot, pot 1 is seeded teams, the other 3 pots according to geographical location. The draw took place on 6th December 2013 and yielded an interesting result for Spain. In their new World Cup soccer jersey the Spanish team will face Netherlands, Chile and Australia.

In their Spain 2014 FIFA World Cup home soccer jersey the team will face Netherlands in their 1st match on 13th June. A rematch of the 2010 World Cup final so early in the tournament is sure to be an interesting tie.

Despite not losing any of their qualifying matches, some critics have begun to wonder whether the Spanish side is lacking the enthusiasm and flair of recent years. The Netherlands has been on strong form, winning 9 of their 10 qualifying games. However, past World Cup performance has shown the teams lack of predictability.

The top 2 teams from each group proceed to the 2nd stage of the tournament. Spain and Netherlands are ranked much higher than both Chile and Australia, and are likely to finish in the top 2 spots. A tough 1st game may be a bad omen for both teams, that will be looking for a winning result in the 1st outing of their new World Cup soccer jersey.

What do you think of the 1st round draw result? Do you think Spain can continue their winning form and lift the World Cup in Brazil?
