Spain manager Vicente del Bosque has hinted that he will make changes to his side for their second World Cup game against Chile at the Maracana Stadium tonight.

The defending champions slumped to a heavy 5-1 defeat against the Netherlands in their World Cup opener last week, despite taking the lead versus the Dutch.

And Del Bosque, who admitted that he may make changes against Chile, was however quick to add that he is not in favour of too many alterations.

But the Spanish boss was full of praise for his charges who did not feature against the Netherlands, as he feels they have the potential to represent La Roja at the World Cup.

"We'll possibly make changes, but not a lot," he told FIFA’s official site.  


"There are 12 players who haven't played, who have the level, who have the prestige, who play for great clubs in great championships, and maybe we'll give them the possibility [of playing]."

After tonight’s game, Spain, who are currently in the bottom of Group B, will face Australia in their final group match on Monday.
