Ex-Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales kissed Hermoso during the World Cup trophy presentation, which she says was not consensual.

The kiss sparked outcry and Rubiales eventually resigned and was given a restraining order. Spain is set to play Italy and Switzerland in the Nations League.

Spain’s World Cup success this summer was overshadowed by Rubiales’ actions during the celebrations after the final whistle.

World Cup-winning manager Jorge Vilda was also eventually sacked and is being investigated as part of the criminal case against Rubiales, but has since been appointed manager of the Morocco women’s team.

Rubiales was banned from going within 200 metres of Hermoso after she filed a legal complaint.

At a court case in Madrid, the former federation president has denied sexually assaulting and coercing Hermoso.
