Also, the boys at Sports-Reference.com have finally come out with their international football site, futref.com

It has leagues from the five big governing nations (England, Spain, Germany, France, Italy) + USA, plus World Cup stuff.

Julen Lopetegui sacked by Spain before World Cup after taking Real Madrid job

A little speechless right now as I move my Spanish training top to the back of the closet for the next few weeks.

Well that would seem to be a bad sign for Spain's chances at this year's tournament.

If that had happened here, the high drama would have been turned into a reality show called The Real Madrid of Orange County.

It's my understanding Mexico and Canada are co-hosting the 2026 tournament along with their troubled middle child.

Given how long most of Spain's players have been together I'm not sure they need much "managing". But wow this is weird timing, I wonder why RM were unwilling to delay announcing the hire.
