Holding out for a Hierro: Iran v Spain

Hola Big Interview listeners!

After their remarkable World Cup group opener with Portugal, Spain's players will be hoping for a quieter evening against Iran - a team coached by Carlos Queiroz. Believe me when I say that getting one over on the former Manchester United assistant will matter to the likes of Gerard Pique.

A victory will also mean a lot to Fernando Hierro. I have spent a great deal of time in his company as he settles into the job of Spain manager and, in this podcast, I discuss how Hierro is coping with the role and describe the relationship he is cultivating with the Spanish media.

The job of covering La Roja in Russia means that I have not been able to see every game in this tournament, but I did watch England's victory over Tunisia and I also give my views on their team and manager Gareth Southgate.

Dasvidanya!
