It has been well documented how good this Spain team is. Lets look at what they have accomplished.
At the youth level the U-21 side won the 2011 European title and quite a few members of that side are now on the Spain squad.
The last two European Championships have been won by the senior side, added by a World Cup title in-between.
This is the best international side ever based entirely by their successes and deserving the praise.
That said this current squad looks to be the pinnacle of its dominance as this and the World Cup look to be the last major tournament for many members of this squad as major members of previous winners are most likely coming to the end of their contribution for the national team.
That doesn’t mean that this side could be called weaker than the team that won last summer’s Euro’s.
At every position is a player who is a fixture on their club’s 11 in major leagues.
But it must be said that there are questions at the back with the captain Iker Casillas who was removed from the Real Madrid goal by his manager in a fight that resulted in the manager leaving and Casillas staying, a sign that player power is at its strongest.
Also Xavi Alonzo is not present, due to injury. Sure it presents an opportunity to find the suitable replacement who will take over for the long term so for Spain it could be all for the good.
Triumph is all that should be expected by Spanish fans who will look to win the only international competition they have yet to win during this golden age for Spain.
