The current World and European Champion
They say that Fútbol is like a religion in Spain. It would be perhaps more accurate to say that religion is like soccer in Spain, such is the devotion expressed by the Spanish to their beloved sport. Spain has a great history of soccer, arguably only beaten by England and Italy in terms of football heritage. Real Madrid is the most successful soccer team in Europe. It never fails to astonish visitors that a nation, normally so relaxed and laid-back, becomes so intensely passionate when it comes to soccer. The game has been played competitively in the country for over 100 years, and club sides have had great success on the international stage. Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are the two teams which dominate Spanish soccer and both of them are giants on the world stage. The league is called La Liga and teams also compete for la Copa del Rey (the King’s Cup). After recent years’ success, Spain has been described as the new powerhouse of European League Soccer.
