  • Fernando Hierro only took charge two days before the World Cup started

Spain were tipped among the favourites until Lopetegui caused chaos by announcing he would become Real Madrid's new coach after the World Cup.

Spain crashed out of the World Cup to Russian Federation at the last-16 stage after losing a penalty shoot-out.

Fernando Hierro has left his Spain coaching role and will not also return as the Sporting Director, Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has confirmed.

Ex-Barcelona and Roma coach Luis Enrique has been appointed as Spain manager.

Fernando Hierro has quit his role as sporting director of the Spanish FA following the round-of-16 exit at the World Cup.

The Spanish federation (RFEF) has announced the former Barcelona boss will be the full-time successor to Julen Lopetegui.

Enrique, 48, won two LaLiga titles and the Champions League with Barca before stepping down past year.

She next faces Italy's Camila Giorgi who saved a match point to beat Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-2. In a match full of big swings, Keys led 5-2 in the first set before Rodina won the next nine games to go 4-0 up in the second.

Before that, Spain were humiliated at the hands of the Netherlands in 2014 and beaten by Italy at Euro 2016 - their winning streak but a distant memory.

Hierro had previously said he accepted responsibility for the team's failure to advance any further in the World Cup.

A former Spain worldwide, Luis Enrique represented both Real Madrid and Barcelona during his playing career. He followed it up with a domestic double in the 2015-16 campaign.

Enrique's first game in charge will be a Uefa Nations League game away to England at Wembley Stadium on Sept 8.

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

Molina, 47, a former goalkeeper with Atletico Madrid, Deportivo La Coruna and Villarreal, earned nine Spain caps as a player.
