Spain is getting its chance in the spotlight for a chance to host the 2018 World Cup. FIFA delegates started their four-day inspection visit of stadiums and other facilities in Spain on Monday.

The FIFA delegates were shown around the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, which would host the final match.

The inspection group was presented with a Real Madrid shirt, and members took an opportunity to show some ball skills and try penalty shots.
