Vicente Del Bosque couldn’t have dreamed of a ‘better preparation’ as Spain gear up for Euro 2016.

The back-to-back winners of the European Championships play their final warm-up match against Georgia in Getafe before travelling to France.

Del Bosque hinted he’ll rotate many of his players, and told reporters he’ll most likely play David de Gea in goal against the minnows.

”Tomorrow is another friendly game for our preparation, the last game and we have to try to go there in the best possible conditions, so it is possible David [De Gea] plays tomorrow only because Iker [Casillas] played the other day, we are still preparing and we have until the 13th to make a decision with regards who plays in goal and in other positions also.

”I don’t know who will play tomorrow because at the moment our idea is to give all 20 outfield players as many minutes as possible in the preparation games, so they get used to playing with each other and our systems, so we can play the best possible team, so tomorrow we will go out with who we think suits us best.”

La Roja open their tournament campaign against the Czech Republic in Toulouse on Monday.

”I saw the Czech Republic in their game against Russia which they won 2-1 they are a good side they play with two quick fullbacks especially on the right hand side, they are well organised in the middle and have [Vladimir] Darid and [David] Pavelka and also going forward [Tomas] Rosicky and [Jaroslav] Plasil, and two forwards one big [Tomas] Necid and one small guy who is their top scorer, we played them recently in a qualifying stage and we know they won’t make it easy for us or for Turkey or the Croats.
