Spain's coach off to Real Madrid, sacked within hours, and a replacement hired.

All the day before the world cup!

Bonkers stuff. Don't see why they needed to sack him in the first place.

No matter how talented the team is, this sort of shark happening two days before your first game at the World Cup can't be too helpful.

Would still be a shock if anyone other than the two favourites progressed, though I've not seen anything of Morocco.

Portugal and Spain sleep walk out of this group but I can see Spain going home earlier than they might like.
Why on earth would you gas the coach days prior to kick off

Grumpy old bastard alert

Arousal ahead of important games is not uncommon.

Actually, getting outplayed quite a bit these days

Early 2000s Portugal were one of my favourite teams, but after the way they played to win the Euros I'd like to see Morocco qualify out of this group with Spain.

Portugal v Spain was an awesome game as a neutral to watch, some great football on display.

Great game. Spain stronger on balance. Back luck with keeper mistake. 4 great goals, goalie mistake and penalty. Great first game to watch. Rule No.1 for defenders - don't touch Ronaldo anywhere near goal!

Wonderful game. Ronaldo might be a prat but he's a genius. Terrific goals from Nacho and Costa's first too.

Sorry but any striker if he is worth anything would have gone down after that challenge. Yes Ronaldo can be a bloody diver but come on that was clearly a penalty.

Enjoyed Morocco vs Iran & Spain vs Portugal.

I was keen to see Morocco win, but good on Iran for getting a win given their troubles with US sanctions etc. Mind you, the boots they sourced last minute seemed better than the ones Portugal were using & slipping around in. Morocco tried playing a really positive game but missed chances then lost their way in the second half.

All 3 games this morning changed near the end after a needless foul given away. Spain were playing Portugal off the park for the most part. Pretty disappointing way for Spain to drop 3 goals, off a penalty, free kick, and goalkeeper howler.

Noticed the Portuguese slipping and sliding particularly in the 2nd half,wonder if it anything to do with pitch being watered at halftime.

Don't foul anyone in or close to the box. Don't stop attacking with a 1 goal lead.

That should be our chant at the Phoenix games.
