The 2018 FIFA World Cup will take centre stage across the globe when it begins tomorrow. However, while the opening game between Russia and Saudi Arabia should be the main talking point, the shock sacking of Spain manager Julen Lopetegui has stolen the headlines on the eve of the tournament.
Celta Vigo and former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas has said that he spoke to Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata after his compatriot was omitted from Spain’s 23-man World Cup squad.
Spanish national team coach Julen Loptegui has admitted that Alvaro Morata “deserved” to be included in the 23-man squad that will travel to Russia this summer and was unlucky to be left out.
As we enter yet another laborious international break, with England set to face off against Germany and Brazil, several members of Antonio Conte’s squad have jetted off to various parts of the globe to continue the long road to Russia 2018.
Former Blues’ striker Fernando Torres has praised Alvaro Morata’s strong start to life at Stamford Bridge, proclaiming the Chelsea forward to be “one of the best” in the world.
