Spain's sporting director Fernando Hierro will lead the country at the World Cup.

Hierro, who is a member of Spain's party for the tournament in Russia, has been installed in the role after the sacking of Julen Lopetegui from the role on Wednesday.

Lopetegui was removed from his role after taking up the vacant Real Madrid job just two days before Spain play Portugal in their Group B opener.

Hierro was also involved with the Spanish national team which defeated Holland in the 2010 World Cup final in South Africa.

The 50-year-old, who was the assistant to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid in 2014, managed Spanish side Real Oviedo during the 2016-17 season.
