Football lovers around the world are as a result of this, happy to see Spain turn their uneventful World cup campaign around – They have taken to social media to express their happiness at this turn around.
What they said:
Blimey, Spain are 6 up against World Cup finalists Croatia. Just shows how damaging it was to lose their coach just before the tournament. So much talent.

But Spain honestly didn't want to play at the world cup
like they were sending a message because of their sacked coach or something

4-0 now (Rodrigo)
Differences with the Spain from WC
– Different striker (instead of Costa, a mobile Rodrigo)
– a midfield that appears in the box from deep (Saul)
– youth (2 years younger average)
– more goal (6 chances, 4 goals)
– less passes before finishing attack

Spain have beaten England last week, Croatia today.
If Spain had beat Russia at World Cup, they would have meet Croatia and England on the way to the final.

Man Utd Manager, Solskjaer Hopes Ighalo Will Stay With Team
Former Super Eagles forward, Ighalo, was signed from the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, but his short-term deal expires at the end of May.
Despite United’s interest in extending Ighalo’s stay, Shanghai is reportedly keen for him to return to China for the start of their season.
“The loan deal went to the end of May now, so obviously he’s supposed to be going back,” Solskjaer said.
“We’re in dialogue and hopefully (he can stay). They’ve been great towards us, his club, and allow him to play for his dream club. It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, maybe with a trophy or two. But at the moment nothing’s been agreed yet. Their league is going to start soon so we are just waiting to see.”
Ighalo scored four goals in three starts and made eight appearances in total for United.
