The man who masterminded the beginning of Spain's rise to become the world's best football nation has died.

Luis Aragones, guided the Spanish to glory at Euro 2008.

He passed away in a Madrid clinic, aged seventy-five.

Until those European Championships in Austria and Swizerland, Spain had underachieved.

They’ve gone on to win a World Cup and another Euro crown under Aragones’s successor, Vicente Del Bosque.

Aragones made many changes when he began coaching the national team in 2004 and was criticised, at first, but brought his country their first trophy in over forty years. He stood down after Euro 2008 and went to coach at Fenerbache in Turkey.
