Spain’s national team had a hair raising return flight from their dismal World Cup after their plane was struck by lightning. Spanish media has reported that the La Roja team were on their way home to Madrid from Curitiba, via Las Palmas, when lightning struck one of the aeroplane’s wings, causing what sounded like an explosion. The pilot reported that there had been no injuries and that all Spanish players and accompanying media representatives had left the plane uninjured. The teams’ extraordinarily rapid exit from the World Cup, their worst ever performance in a World Cup competition, was slightly softened by the team’s  3-0 win over Australia last night (Tuesday) after being eliminated in the first round. The team took an Iberian flight back to Madrid and arrived dressed in black tracksuits, ignoring the waiting media. Waiting fans were left disappointed as the players all left Adolfo Suárez airport via a back door.
