Spain sacks national football team coach Julen Lopetegui just a day before FIFA World Cup starts

The president of the Spanish football federation (RFEF) Luis Rubiales on Wednesday announced that he had sacked Julen Lopetegui as Spanish national team coach just two days before Spain`s debut at the World Cup in Russia.

The move comes after Real Madrid unexpectedly announced on Tuesday that Lopetegui, who had only recently extended his contract with Spain, would take over as their coach next season.
