Luis Enrique reveals in Spain squad in bizarre fashion...

They may not be the swashbuckling, dominant force of a few years ago but Spain are still one of the teams to beat when it comes to international football. For decades they were considered as one of the biggest underachievers in the national game (alongside England annoyingly) but a spell of domination between 2008-12 which saw them win the European Championships (2008 & 2012) along with the 2010 FIFA World Cup ended that, with them playing some absolutely sublime football along the way. The squad and management team has changed significantly since then but their fans will be hopeful that they can achieve some more success in the near future.

The man leading the Spanish assault these days is Luis Enrique, who picked up 62 caps for the national team between 1991-2002. His managerial career didn't start too well but in his previous job as Barcelona boss he excelled, guiding the Catalonians to domestic and continental success. He's enjoyed some fantastic moments both as a player and manager but last week he did something a little out of the ordinary when announcing his squad for Spain's upcoming internationals against Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The 48 year-old presented his squad selection to the media by using Panini stickers - something which we can safely say we've never seen before. Enrique revealed his 23 man team one-by-one, sticking them on the wall to build up the suspense for their supporters. It's a pretty weird way to unveil your squad and we're not sure who's idea it was, but it's certainly different. Gareth if you're watching - you know what to do...
