Was the announcement badly timed?

It is worth noting that Belgium are certainly not short of quality in midfield - Kevin de Bryne, Alex Witsel, Mousa Dembele and Marouane Fellaini were all selected ahead of Nainggolan.

Frenchman Zinedine Zidane stepped down two weeks ago, days after leading Real to a third consecutive Champions League title. "There's a way to act that needs to be fulfilled". A hat-trick of Champions League titles?

As for Ronaldo's future with Real Madrid, it's possible he never plays for Lopetegui at all. But what is the view in Spain?

Now a press conference will take place and it will clarify the position of the coach. Instead, Premier League managers namely Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino were linked to the Bernabeu hot seat with the Argentine an early frontrunner. But none of them have beaten Argentina 6-1. "If not, the national team won't happen", he admitted. Florentino Perez must've taken more than just a sneaky look.

Yet, the timing of Madrid's announcement of him as the manager starting the upcoming season beats most boundaries of rationale. To think, Spain play their opening game against Portugal.

But while FIFA politics has a habit of throwing up surprises, the promise of a handsome profit from games played at large capacity, already existing stadiums across North America is likely to sway enough voters.

"We have to decided to fire the national coach. For the rest, we will see - I do not know [how long he will be away from football]".

"Madrid announce that the Spanish national manager will be their new coach for three years once the World Cup is over".

After a stint as Spain's Under-17 assistant, Lopetegui was handed his first head coaching role at former club Rayo.

With Spain preparing for their first World Cup match against Portugal in Sochi on Friday night, Real Madrid have gone and announced that La Roja's coach will be their new boss.
