Luis Enrique named new Spain head coach

Spain's World Cup campaign descended into chaos just two days before their opening game with Portugal, as Lopetegui was sacked as a result of agreeing to join Real Madrid after the event.

Spanish football federation (RFEF) confirmed the development on Sunday afternoon.

"We are going to have a council meeting now and we will take a decision", Luis Rubiales told a press conference.

Marca's front page has a photograph of Luis Enrique with a headline: "The new Luis".

Rubiales also appointed former La Roja and Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper Jose Francisco Molina as Spain's new sporting director. This has resulted in a newfound apathy across the national team fanbase and Luis Enrique must find a way to bring back the trust and optimism of the old days.
