World Cup Squads: Spain, ¡Y Viva España!

World Champions in 2010 and European Champions in 2008 and 2012, Spain went out four years ago at the quarter-final stage to hosts and eventual champions Brazil. Now ranked 7th in the world, they were drawn as the top seeds in Group A where they’ll face South Korea, Uruguay, and Serbia at the FIFA World Cup.

Spain and Uruguay met in 2014, with Javi Martínez’s brace sealing the group stage win. Cesc Fàbregas looks doubtful for their opening match on Friday 15th with bruised ribs.

RTFM has returned after a three year hiatus. Our FM13 save has been fully simulated from May 2015 until June 2018, and our unique daily posting style has now resumed. We will return to club management after our save generates the domestic leagues we’ve selected for the 2018-19 season on, or shortly after, 20th June. Feel free to ask questions in the comments or @realtimefm.
