There will be of course be no Franck Ribery as the player is now retired from international football. He also missed last World Cup which was organized in Brazil. But, the player is still playing for German club Bayern Munich. Les Blues have a lousy record against Spain in recent time, but the winds of change may be in the air for both countries.
After failing to record a good result with Spain at last World Cup, everyone expected that the Spanish coach resign his job. However, the experienced tactician has been given yet another chance to prove his worth and he will be in charge of the qualification round of UEFA Euro 2016.
