Lopetegui on Spain's Uefa Nations League draw:

England and Croatia:

"It's an attractive, demanding group. It's a competition which is going to see a lot of really competitive fixtures."


"Once you get the hang of the system, the Nations League format isn't so complicated. It's a tournament that's going to be good for the teams and attractive for the fans, and one the players will be up for. I'm sure it will be a success."


"Who the favourites are is more something that's for the media to talk about."


"We're going to see very evenly-matched games, and that's positive."

Russia 2018:

"Our prime objective is the World Cup, although we have important friendlies up first. We're looking forward to it and we're out to make a big impact."
