Sala R.

Did you Know?

This style of shirt was never used by the team but it was issued for the Spain Team at the Olympic Games in Sydney 2000. The team used a white shirt with red sleeves in the game against Cameroon. We are not sure if this shirt was supposed to be the third kit for the Olympic Games or if it has been changed with the version with red sleeves.

Canizares Santiago

Things to Know:

Cañizares was capped 46 times for Spain, the first on 17 November 1993: Zubizarreta was sent off in the tenth minute of a decisive 1994 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Denmark, and he made his debut in heroic fashion, keeping a clean sheet in the 1–0 home win and ensuring qualification at the expense of the Danes themselves. However, Cañizares was often second-choice, and only played five games in the major international scene: one in the 1994 World Cup (as Zubi served a one-match ban), three in UEFA Euro 2000 and one in the 2006 World Cup. He was also a squad member at Euro 1996, the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2004 but did not play, blocked by Zubizarreta in the 1990s and Iker Casillas in 2004; he was equally an unused player in the gold winning squad at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. Cañizares’ club form ensured himself as first-choice international in the 2002 World Cup, but he missed out on the tournament due to an accident with an aftershave bottle, which resulted in a severed tendon in his foot. He was also in Spain’s squad at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, making his only appearance in the tournament and last in his international career in the last group match against Saudi Arabia, a 1–0 win in Kaiserslautern.

Xavi Hernandez

Did you Know?

On 5 August 2014, following the 2014 World Cup where Spain were eliminated at the group stage, Xavi announced his retirement from international football, having made 133 appearances in a 14-year period. Spain’s World Cup-winning manager Vicente del Bosque paid tribute, stating that Xavi was “a key part of the team’s style of play” and “he was more important to us than even the manager”, also adding, “We will miss him both on and off the pitch. He is a player who we hold in great esteem both personally and as a player. He is and always will be a person and a player who is greatly valued by the federation, the coaching staff and by myself.”
