Spain Squad in the 2022 World Cup
Spain has long been a powerhouse in the world of international soccer, and their squad for the 2022 World Cup is no different. Comprised of some of the best players in the world, the Spanish team is looking to make a deep run in the tournament.
Led by captain Sergio Ramos, the Spanish team has a wealth of experience and talent.
Ramos is one of the best defenders in the world and will be key to stopping opposing teams' attacks. In addition to Ramos, other key players on the squad include midfielders Andres Iniesta and David Silva, as well as forwards Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata. With a strong mix of experience and youth, the Spanish team looks poised to make a run at the 2022 World Cup title.
Spain World Cup Qualifiers 2022
Spain are set to begin their World Cup qualifying campaign for the 2022 tournament in Qatar. They will be looking to build on their successful showing at the 2018 World Cup, where they reached the Round of 16. Spain have been drawn in Group B for the qualifiers, alongside Sweden, Poland and the Czech Republic. They will open their campaign with a home game against Sweden on March 24th. Spain will be hoping to make it back-to-back appearances at the World Cup, and will be looking to qualified for the tournament in Qatar.
1994 Spain World Cup Squad
The Spanish national football team won the FIFA World Cup for the first time in their history in 2010. They had previously reached the final in 1934, 1950 and 1986. The 1994 World Cup was their first appearance in 24 years. Spain qualified automatically for the 1994 World Cup as hosts, but their squad was not without its problems. Manager Javier Clemente selected a 23-man squad that included only two players who were based outside of Spain, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andoni Zubizaretta and Barcelona midfielder Pep Guardiola. This would prove to be a controversial decision, as many of Spain's best players were based abroad, including Atlético Madrid's Fernando Hierro and Valencia's Miguel Ángel Angulo. Clemente was also criticised for his decision to omit Barcelona striker Hristo Stoichkov from the squad.
1998 Spain World Cup Squad
The Spanish national football team has competed at the FIFA World Cup on four occasions, winning the tournament once. They first competed as a nation in the 1950 FIFA World Cup held in Brazil. This was their only appearance until the 1970 competition held in Mexico where they failed to progress from the group stage. Spain qualified for the 1990 World Cup in Italy but again they did not progress from their group.
They reached the quarter-finals of both the 1994 and 2002 tournaments, losing to eventual winners Brazil and South Korea respectively. In 2010, they reached their first ever final, which they lost to Netherlands 1-0 after extra time. Finally, in 2014, they won their maiden trophy by defeating Netherlands 5-1 in the final with goals coming from Diego Costa, David Silva, Andrés Iniesta and Fernando Torres.
2002 Spain World Cup Squad
Spain entered the 2002 World Cup with high hopes after a strong showing at the 2000 European Championship. The squad was loaded with talent, including future World Cup winners Xavi and Iker Casillas. However, Spain failed to live up to expectations at the 2002 World Cup, as they were eliminated in the group stage. It was a disappointing end for a talented squad that had high hopes of winning Spain's first ever World Cup title.
2006 Spain World Cup Squad
On June 9, 2006, Spanish head coach Luis Aragonés announced his 23-man squad that would compete in the 2006 World Cup. The team was made up of mostly home-based players with only a few from foreign clubs. Goalkeepers Iker Casillas and José Reina were the only two keepers named to the squad. In defense, Sergio Ramos and Carlos Puyol were the starters with Pablo Ibáñez, Joan Capdevila, and Antonio López providing depth. In midfield, Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, Cesc Fàbregas were the creative forces behind striker David Villa. The team was widely considered to be one of the best in Spanish history and was expected to make a deep run in the tournament. However, they were ultimately eliminated in the round of 16 by France.
2008 Spain World Cup Squad
The Spanish National Football Team has announced their 23-man squad that will represent the nation at the 2008 European Football Championship in Austria and Switzerland. Head coach Luis Aragonés has named the following players: Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Pepe Reina (Liverpool), Manuel Almunia (Arsenal). Defenders: Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Carlos Puyol (Barcelona), Míchel Salgado (Real Madrid), Joan Capdevila (Villarreal), Mariano Pernía (Atlético Madrid), Carlos Marchena (Valencia), Antonio López ( Atlético Madrid).
2010 Spain World Cup Squad
Spain's 2010 World Cup Squad was one of the most talented and deepest teams in the history of the sport. Head coach Vicente del Bosque had a plethora of world-class talent to choose from when putting together his 23-man roster for the tournament. In the end, del Bosque went with a mix of experience and youth, selecting a squad that was capable of winning Spain's first ever World Cup title.
2014 Spain World Cup Squad
After much anticipation, the Spanish national team has announced their final 23-man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Head coach Vicente del Bosque chose a mix of experienced veterans and young talents, with Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, and Xavi Hernandez leading the way. The defending champions will look to make history by becoming the first team to win back-to-back World Cups, and they will have their work cut out for them in a difficult Group B that includes Chile and the Netherlands. But with a squad as talented as this one, Spain will be a force to be reckoned with in Brazil.
