Just two days before leaving the 2018 World Cup with Portugal, the Spanish coach decided to dismiss coach Lopetegui. This can have a disastrous impact on Portugal and Spain.

Lopetegui suddenly fired

On Wednesday, Real Madrid announced Julen Lopetegui as their new coach from 2018/19. Less than a day later, Spain Spain decided to terminate the contract with the keeper. The head of the national team of bullfighting felt betrayed.

President Luis Rubiales has revealed the true cause behind Lopetegui’s dismissal. The 40-year-old, head of the State Football Association (RFEF), recently said they were forced to make the decision. Rubiales and his colleagues only learned of Lopetegui’s arrival a few hours before official news arrived.


The federation wants to send a message to members of the squad. That they are not allowed to commit noncompliance. They were pleased with what Lopetegui had done for Spain. But disagreed with him for making a bad start to the squad.


In the history of the World Cup. No national team has fired a coach just one day before. The start of the tournament and two days before the start of the campaign. No one wants this to happen, but the truth is that Lopetegui has left. And Spain’s preparation for the big tournament in Russia has been negatively affected. Portugal vs Spain also changed dramatically.

In 20 matches as coach of Spain from 2016 to now. Lopetegui achieved unbeaten (14 wins, 6 draw). Not only was the performance, the manner in which the 51-year-old keeper of La Roja revived was praiseworthy. The two major tournaments are the 2014 World Cup. And the Euro 2016 under the predecessor Vicente Del Bosque, Spain are all heavy defeat.


Spain’s best candidate for the World Cup

They finished in the group stage and round 1/8 are considered candidates for the championship. Taking over Spain, Lopetegui has reconciled the two generations. One is the veterans have helped “Gaur” to the top of Europe and the world as Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta or David Silva …

Two are those who aspire to represent themselves in the national squad such as Dani Carvajal, Koke, Thiago Alcantara, Isco or Marco Asensio … All of them join together as a team and help Spain to fly with 3-0 victory. Before Italy (World Cup qualifiers 2018) or 6-1 to Argentina (International Friendlies).
But lack of Lopetegui – newcomers in Real. Which means the plan has outlined the last two years of the Spain to float the river, according to the sea. The team nicknamed “Gaur” is now lost under the hand of newcomer Fernando Hierro. Only two working days with the players is too little for the former RFEF Sports Director to make a mark on their professionalism.

The psychological problem of the player is also very complex with Hierro. Spanish squad to World Cup 2018 is chosen by Lopetegui with great belief for them. No less than 10 out of 23 Spanish players are now in the squad. Who have followed him in the U19 youth squad to the under-21 country and are definitely in the mood.

Portugal is a big challenge

Right at the time of trouble, a new Spanish coach instead of a European right back to the European champions like Portugal. Compare to two years ago when winning the Euro 2016, Seleccao was even more highly regarded.

There are still the same spirit as Cristiano Ronaldo, Rui Patrício, Pepe, Joao Moutinho, Ricardo Quaresma … but has added talent young talent. All have formed a strong team to help the Portuguese win 9 of the 10 qualifying matches to win tickets directly to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.


Because of this, Portugal is no longer a one man team. Ronaldo has more support from the surrounding satellites. Only on the line, the Andre Silva, Goncalo Guedes, Gelson Martins, Bernardo Silva … will match the CR7 to help the team betel shirt became very unpredictable.


The Lopetegui incident will certainly make Spain more or less affected. Portugal, though underestimated, would appear to have won at least one draw in the clash at Olimpiyskiy (Sochi)
Probable teams:
1.Patrício – 21.Cédric, 3.Pepe, 6.Fonte, 5.Guerreiro – 11.Bernardo Silva, 14.Carvalho, 10.Mário, 20.Quaresma – 7.Ronaldo, 9.Andre Silva
1.De Gea – 12.Oriozola, 3.Piqué, 15.Ramos, 18.Alba – 10.Thiago, 5.Busquets, 6.Intera – 22.Isco, 19.Costa – 21.David Silva.

Prediction for 1-1
