WORLD CUP 2018

Spain line out in 'lucky' away strip against Portugal

Superstitious fans of 'La Roja' will be aware that Sergio Ramos will be leading the team out in the same 'lucky' away strip in which they thrashed Argentina 6-1 in March.

Spain line out in 'lucky' away strip against Portugal

Spain will line out in their 'lucky' away kit tonight in their opening World Cup game against Portugal at the Olympic Stadium in Sochi.

In traditional white with a retro blue threading at the front, the jersey was unveiled in March, and days later was worn in the 6-1 thrashing of Argentina. 

Superstitous fans of 'La Roja' will be hoping the jersey will be a lucky charm for tonight's game, which could probably decide which team finishes top of Group B.  

This will be Spain's first game under new coach Fernando Hierro, who took over two days ago following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui.
