Julen Lopetegui’s side have been training near the Spanish capital before jetting out to Russia, where they will face local rivals Portugal in Group B on the second day of the tournament.
It promises to be the first mouthwatering clash of Russia 2018 with Cristiano Ronaldo up against many of his Real Madrid club mates.
