Guide to watching Portugal v Spain

Here’s your full guide to how and where to watch Portugal v Spain in the World Cup 2018, at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi, Russia. And what a mouth watering clash we have in store. The big news clearly is that Spain sacked their coach Julen Lopetegui on Wednesday (he’s now at Real Madrid) and come into the game with new man Fernando Hierro, who got promoted in the aftermath of the firing. So everyone’s desperate to see how Spain react to that.

Even without that added spice though this match was one of the stand-out fixtures of the group stage, pitting two genuine heavyweights against each other: the admittedly ageing European Champions of 2016 against one of the absolute favourites to win it and reclaim the trophy they won in 2010.
