Soccer-Spain make one change for Morocco game

KALININGRAD, Russia, June 25 (Reuters) - Thiago Alcantara will start ahead of Lucas Vazquez as Spain coach Fernando Hierro made one change to his line-up for their final World Cup Group B game against Morocco on Monday.

Spain, level with Portugal at the top of the standings on four points, will be relying for goals on striker Diego Costa as top spot could be decided by goal difference.

Morocco, looking to salvage pride after two 1-0 losses, made one change from the team who faced Portugal with defender Romain Saiss coming in for Medhi Benatia.

Spain and Portugal start level on four points with Iran on three. Portugal play Iran in the other Group B match in Saransk. (Reporting by Steve Keating in Kaliningrad, Editing by Ed Osmond)
