Portugal have been forced to make the first change to their starting lineup at the finals due to striker Helder Postiga's thigh injury and, as expected, Hugo Almeida replaces him in a three-pronged attack with Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Del Bosque's move means Spain will play with a recognised striker after beating France 2-0 in their quarterfinal with a six-man midfield but there is no place for Fernando Torres who is on the bench along with fellow forward Fernando Llorente.
Sevilla striker Negredo, who was thought to be behind both of those strikers in the pecking order, has scored six goals in 11 games for Spain but has appeared just once in the tournament so far - as an 89th minute substitute against Croatia.
