Former Real Madrid boss Vicente del Bosque was named as the new coach of the Spanish national team. He replaces Luis Aragones, the man who led Spain to Euro 2008 glory.
Del Bosque will take charge of his first match on August 20 when Spain face Austria in a friendly international in Copenhagen.
His first competitive game will be a 2010 World Cup qualifier against Bosnia in Murcia on September 6.
Aragones was not offered a new deal with Spain and has signed a two-year contract with Turkish side Fenerbahce.
