Spain sack coach one day to World Cup kick off

Spain head coach Fernando Hierro top centre touches his forehead as gives instructions to his players during Spain's official training on the eve of the group B match between Portugal and Spain at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Fisht Stadium in S

In what has been has been a dramatic day for Spanish football, the Country's FA chose to remove Lopetegui from his position as they were furious that he had agreed to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid next season on the eve of the World Cup, after previously committing his future to the national team.

Lopetegui is returning to Spain this afternoon and was confronted by a hoard of reporters as he arrived at the airport in Russian Federation to board his flight.

Luis Rubiales looked irritated as he addressed a news conference at Spain's training base in Krasnodar, over 1,300 km from here, on Wednesday. Here is why Los Blancos opted for the Spain boss just three days ahead of La Furia Roja's 2018 FIFA World Cup opener. "When we know we will tell you".

"They are fantastic players and with Julen they have been preparing this game for months". His Spain side are still unbeaten since he took over after Euro 2016, and easily qualified for the tournament in Russian Federation.

"From now until the Portugal match, we don't have the ability to change much".

Asked about the dressing room in the aftermath of the sacking of Lopetegui, Hierro said: "The feedback I've had has been really good".

"The president has given his judgement on what happened, and we must be positive", he said.

Heavily armoured enemies will present a challenge, as you scoop masses of loot, and strive to take the U.S. capital back. As such, The Division 2 finds agents with more of the world in a state of not just devastation, but lawlessness.

"The side will stay the same as it has done up until now, it's up to us to move on and put this behind us and think about what we are representing".

"I'm sure this will, in time, make us stronger".

'Wait, maybe I get a call up now, ' he tweeted. It has not lost a match since a 2-0 loss Italy in the European Championships round of 16 almost two years ago. We must show maturity in this moment.

Diario Gol added that Ramos wants Real to complete the controversial deal and sign Oblak from their arch rivals.

The squad of players which sailed through qualifying and remain one of the pre-tournament favourites remained fully committed to the cause, Hierro said.

"But, after five minutes, I saw it in the press and we had to react". In the RFEF we can not not fulfil our own values. The feedback has been fantastic, that is all I can tell you. After consulting with management and former players, Rubiales believed that for the health of the team it was best to let the coach go. I knew at least 90 percent of them from before.

Spain's World Cup hopes may have been dashed today as their head-coach Julen Lopetegui, has been sacked with immediate effect.
