In photos posted on social media, spotted by Sports Brief, legendary Spanish trio Puyol, Villa and Iniesta were high-profile personalities sighted at the stadium.

The Barcelona trio were in all action the last time Spain locked horns with Germany in a World Cup game back in 2010.

In that semi-final match, a Puyol second-half header consigned Vicente Del Bosque's side to the final which they eventually won following a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands.

Germany is hoping to use their game against Spain to turn their fortunes around at the 2022 FIFA World Cup following their shock opening day defeat to Japan.

The 2014 World Champions risk being eliminated from the group stages of the World Cup for a second consecutive time if they lose to Luis Enrique’s team.

Neuer with brutally honest message to Germany

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Germany’s veteran goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has come out to question his teammates after succumbing to defeat to Japan on Wednesday, November 23.

The Germans were overwhelming favourites going into the Group E clash, and they looked to be on course for victory after Ilkay Gundogan’s first-half penalty.

But Japan ended up upsetting the odds after a number of substitutions for the Samurai Blue ended up being the crucial moment of the game.
