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

Hierro was appointed acting coach after a surprise sacking of Julen Lopetegui who accepted to take over at Real Madrid.

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

Former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is set to be named as the new manager of the Spain national team, according to widespread reports in the country.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez and former Spain internationals Michel and Quique Sanchez Flores had been considered contenders for the position but Luis Enrique was the No. 1 choice.

Hierro was not expected to continue as coach after the World Cup but the RFEF has announced he will not stay with the organisation in any role.

The 48-year-old has been out of work since leaving Barcelona last summer.

Thomas Vermaelen also spoke with the media at a news conference on Sunday and is expecting a hard match against the French. Fifa World Cup has always been dominated by the traditional powerhouses of football .

His appointment was announced this afternoon at a press conference by president of the Spanish Football Federation, Luis Rubiales.

Spain's interim coach Fernando Hierro has cut his ties with the Spanish Football Federation following the team's disastrous exit from the World Cup last week, the organisation said on Sunday.

After he retired from playing, Luis Enrique spent six months living in Byron Bay on Australia's east coast.

Enrique won two La Liga titles, three Copa del Rey trophies and one Champions League during his three-year spell in charge of Barcelona. "Luis Enrique comes with his staff, but he will speak about that topic next week".

A former Spain worldwide, Luis Enrique represented both Real Madrid and Barcelona during his playing career.

Molina, 47, is a former Spanish national goalkeeper and also played for Atletico Madrid and Deportivo de la Coruna. His first game in charge will be a friendly against England, on 8 September at Wembley.
