Andrés Iniesta starts for Spain as La Roja look to seal qualification for the 2018 World Cup last 16 against Morocco tonight (20:00 CEST).

It had been suggested that interim coach Fernando Hierro could rest the veteran midfielder for Spain's final Group B game with one eye on the knockout stages.

Meanwhile, Hierro has opted to make one change to the team that beat Iran on Wednesday, replacing winger Lucas Vázquez with midfielder Thiago Alcántara.
