Spain on Wednesday named Fernando Hierro as their FIFA World Cup 2018 coach. Hierro has replaced Julen Lopetegui, who was sensationally sacked after his appointment as Real Madrid manager.
"Fernando Hierro will assume coaching responsibilities at the World Cup in Russia," the Spanish football federation announced.
The 50-year-old Hierro's only real coaching experience came when he was in charge of second division Spanish outfit Oviedo for one season.
