SPAIN are facing Costa Rica in their opening 2022 World Cup group game RIGHT NOW – and they lead 1-0!
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.
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.
