New Deportivo La Coruna Head Coach Gaizka Garitano declared today that he joins the football club with high hopes and is content to have a one-year deal. Garitano, who formerly coached Valladolid and Eibar, on Friday faced reporters just an hour after Deportivo announced they have signed him for the 2016-17 season.

"What they offered me is a one-year deal and I think it's fair because the coach has to demonstrate his value. I don't care that it's one year. I see it as logical, we coaches need to show our worth every day," he told the media.

Spanish Skipper Iker Casillas said on Thursday that it will be difficult for them to win a third consecutive title at the European football championships, although the team has "good players" to do so.

The goalkeeper told BRT News that all competing teams have been growing with generational change, so it will be difficult for Spain to win Euro 2016, which kicks off on Friday.

He explained that Spain has good players, but everything has to come together and with key moments of luck in order for victory, as was the case in the last two competitions.

The former goalkeeper of Real Madrid acknowledged that Spain's group includes the Czech Republic, Turkey and Croatia, who have "good players" and can complicate his team's qualification for the last 16.

Casillas warned against overconfidence in the opener against the Czech Republic after Spain lost the final warm-up against Georgia.

European football stalwarts saw mixed fortunes in the qualifying draw for the next FIFA World Cup, due to be held in Russia in 2018.

While Netherland, France and Sweden were drawn against each other in Group A, Portugal got an easy Group B, containing the likes of Faroe Islands, Latvia and Andorra. Czech Republic and Northern Ireland were drawn against reigning champions Germany in Group C, while high flyers Wales have a comfortable group too, with their neighbours Republic of Ireland being drawn against them. Chris Coleman’s side have, thus, been provided with a massive boost in their attempts to reach their first World Cup tournament since the 1958 edition.

Spain spectacularly crashed out of the World Cup as Chile resoundingly beat the world champions 2-0. Goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz ensured that Chile booked its place in the round of 16 in the expense of La Furia Roja, who have been a shadow of their former selves in this tournament.

Spain never looked likely to win this must-win game, being put on the back foot by Chile from the beginning. The vibrant, high-pressing play from the likes of Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sanchez and the two goalscorers were too much for Vicente del Bosque’s side.
