An early exit by two-time defending champions Spain means change is coming to La Roja.

Vicente del Bosque, who has overseen a golden generation of players, and led to unparalled success for the nation has decided to step down as manager.

Spain bowed out to Italy in the round of 16, signalling that the team is probably in the need of change.

Under del Bosque, Spain was able to win back-to-back European titles in 2008 and 2012, plus a World Cup sandwiched in between those successes.

But failing to get out of the group stage at the 2014 World Cup, and that loss to Italy at this tournament, meant it was time for a new voice.

Win or lose, the 65-year-old said this would have been the last tournament he would have coached Spain.
