Country Info

  • Spain

  • Real Federación Española de Fútbol

  • Founded: 1909

  • Federation: UEFA

  • Spain joined the international community with their first international against Denmark during the 1920 Olympics held in Brussels. They won 2-1 but then lost the quarter-final to their hosts three days later. Spain kicked-off their matches with England with and impressive 4-3 win in Madrid. However, they were hammered 7-1 when the invitation was reversed two years later.
    Spain are the only victims of an English penalty shoot-out win. The quarter-final of Euro '96 at Wembley went to penalties as both teams played out a 0-0 draw. David Seaman was the hero as he saved Spain's last kick taken by Miguel Angel Nadal (the uncle of an even more famous Spanish tennis player.)
