After the tournament, Spain will have to find a new boss ahead of the new UEFA Nations League, in which they will open against England and Croatia in September.

Lopetegui will have his work cut out at Real Madrid, where standards are high and patience tends to be short with managers unless they deliver instant success.

Most of his playing career was spent at Club Deportivo Logroñés and Rayo Vallecano. La Liga is totally different to the Premier League.

Bale, in particular, will feel threatened by the existing relationships his new manager already holds with Asensio and Isco, with the latter being a particular favourite of Lopetegui's ever since they won the European Under 21 championships together back in 2013.

As Madrid raced through coaching options in the mid-2000s, Camacho was handed another opportunity. However, Brazil are not blessed with an abundance of defensive talent and his omission has come as a surprise to many.

"Football is football and a thousand things can happen".

The centre-half has instead told Real Madrid to sign Atletico Madrid keeper, Jan Oblak, this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, the two big decisions for Lopetegui will be regarding De Gea and Gareth Bale.

Villalonga was the first coach to enjoy lengthy spells in charge of both the capital club and the national side, taking the former job in his mid-thirties.

Lopetegui is currently in Russia with the Spanish squad, but will take over at the Bernabeu following the resignation of Zinedine Zidane.

Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham quickly emerged as a favourite, though his recent contract renewal seemed to make such a move improbable.

The 51-year-old represented Barcelona as a player for three years but will now take charge of their bitter rivals.
