SPAIN face tricky side Costa Rica in their opening 2022 World Cup group game.

La Roja were the best international team in the world between 2008 and 2012, but those stars have retired and the new generation are finding their feet.

They came close to reaching the final of Euro 2020 last year but were knocked out on penalties in the semi-final by Italy.

Spain will be one of the stronger teams heading into the Qatar showpiece at the end of 2022 and they’ll be hoping they can go a step further than they did in 2018.

Four years ago in Russia, Spain went out in the last-16, losing a penalty shootout to the tournament hosts.

Costa Rica have their own World Cup history, as they surprised everyone in 2014 in Brazil, topping a group which contained Italy, England and Uruguay.
