Spain v Northern Ireland: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

After a comfortable 5-0 victory over Andorra in their first warm-up match for Euro 2024, Spain end their tournament preparations with a meeting with Northern Ireland in Mallorca.

Northern Ireland disappointed in qualifying as they finished fifth in Group H - only above the world’s lowest ranked nation in San Marino.

Meanwhile, Spain topped Group A with seven wins from eight games, with a shock defeat to Scotland the only blemish on their otherwise perfect record.

Spain vs Northern Ireland stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Spain regularly come out on top whenever these two sides go head-to-head, with La Roja winning 11 of their 18 total meetings in all competitions.

Their most recent encounter came in 2007 where a second-half strike from Xavi sealed a 1-0 victory for the hosts.

The Green and White Army may have only come out on top on two occasions against the three-time European champions, however one of these victories did come in a major competition.

Gerry Armstrong’s finish after some poor Spanish defending clinched a memorable 1-0 victory at the 1982 World Cup.

Spain team news

Spain boss Luis de la Fuente will be expected to make wholesale changes to the side that cruised to a 5-0 victory over Andorra, with a side closer to his preferred starting XI likely to be named.

This means the likes of Unai Simon, Dani Carvajal and Rodri should all return to the fray from the off, while Ayoze Perez and Fermin Lopez will both be hoping to be involved after impressing on their international debuts.

Northern Ireland team news

Striker Josh Magennis - the top scorer in the Northern Ireland squad - will likely start for Michael O’Neill up front.

The uncapped trio of goalkeeper Pierce Charles, defender Aaron Donnelly and midfielder Caolan Boyd-Munce will all be hoping to make their debuts for their country in Mallorca.
