Flag: La Rojigualda, consists of three horizontal stripes, two red and one yellow.  It’s topped off with the national coat of arms, which is all dragons, castles and Game of Thrones nonsense.

Population: 46.56 million

Nickname: La Furia (The Fury) or La Roja (The Red). Or, and this is clever, La Furia Roja (The Red Fury).

Manager: With Julen Lopetegui sacked just two days before Spain's opener against Portugal after announcing he was taking over at Real Madrid, who knows?  Current money is on a combination of former Los Blancos and Bolton defender Fernando Hierro and U21s boss Albert Celades.

Captain: The Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos.

Star Men: Barcelona’s midfield maestro Andres Iniesta and Manchester City’s David Silva. They may be getting on a bit but they’re still the
beating heart of the Spanish team.
