I find it mind numbingly boring.

I think they're a lot more entertaining than when they were at their height. Isco and Asensio helps add a bit more directness.

Spain are risking it by sacking their manager on the eve of the tournament.

Pure politics and it’s a shame. 

I get the feeling the head of their FA is being a bit petulant because he wasn’t in the loop.

Their version of tiki taka was horrendously boring. Possession for possession’s sake is terrible to watch. 

They can’t be any less entertaining than they were!

TBF it was pretty disrespectful of Lopetegui and reeked of Real Madrid thinking itself more important than the National team.

They weren't possessing for possession's sake. It's utterly tiring constantly moving the defensive unit to match the passing, tiring pressing, tiring mentally keeping up with their passing and movement. Opportunities arise for teams who dominate the ball.

Especially since he told his players to hold off on negotiations regarding transfers with clubs and apparently this did not mean his own self elsewhere. Madrid not great timing and riding the wave of their own greatness. However great fault exists with the national handling of this and claiming dishonor when really their own ego got a bumping.

A lot of people have problems with Benzema being left out of France team because of his past allegations and racial issues but, he wasn't very good this year and I'm one to think that is the actual reason. Although, I do believe he's better than Giroud....
