fútbol = football = soccer

El Mundial 2010

Soccer, or fútbol, is huge in Spain. There are some pretty great teams, with long legacies, and some well recruited talent (both domestic and international). A few tid-bit’s on fútbol in Spain…

  • Spain won the 2010 World Cup, defeating the Netherlands 1-0 on July 11th.
  • The fiercest rivalry lies between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
  • These two teams play each other at least twice yearly and the game is called, “El Clásico”.
  • One of the strongest rivalries of teams from the same city would be Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid.
  • One of the most well known players plays for Real Madrid but is actually from Portugal, Cristian Ronaldo.
