Spain It’s all speculation, but… it now sounds like Lopetegui is staying, thanks to a successful intervention from Nobel Peace Prize winner Sergio Ramos.

Spain This is an astonishing development, just 29 hours before the start of the World Cup. To compound matters, it sounds like the players were strongly against the move. But the former Hamilton Academical defender Luis Rubiales, now Spanish FA president, was not for turning.

Silly man.

Why not wait until after the tournament? It was like waving a red rag to a bull.


#217

This Luis Rubiales fella has a touch of Basil Fawlty about him I suspect.


#218

Reaction from the Brazilian camp


#219

Wikipedia says some chap called Pablo Sanz is the Spain assistant coach. He doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page.


#220

Sergio Ramos will step forward and lead .
