Xavier Hernández Creus
Xavi is the best central midfielder of all time. After playing a supporting role for years, Luis Aragonés finally gave him a chance in 2008, and he led Spain to a magnificent victory.
Xavi then got even better and orchestrated a Spanish masterclass at the 2010 World Cup. In 2012, he was just about to leave but managed one last triumph, completely destroying Andrea Pirlo and Italy 4-0 to win Euro 2012.
Xavi wanted out of soccer, but was re-engaged by Vicente Del Bosque. 2014 wasn’t a great year, but his lackluster play can’t overshadow the splendor of his glory days. Xavi was incomparable. So much so that his world-class teammates looked like mediocre players next to him.
Andrés Iniesta spent the entire 2010/11 club season receiving glowing reviews from all over Spain for his play in Johannesburg.
He was obviously fantastic in both 2008 and 2012, being on top and making his team a million times better, but what he did in 2010 was simply divine. The way he controlled the game in the final and scored the final goal, dedicating it to his friend who played for RCD Espanyol.
The fantastic captain Iker Casillas helped bring order to the Spanish team, after years of turmoil and controversy. He was the big man that Spain hung on to, especially in 2010 when he helped Arjen Robben miss the scoring chance that led Spain to victory.
This Spanish best goalscorer was sorely underestimated. His goals were decisive in establishing Spain’s success, especially at the World Cup when he was the only one to lead Spain’s attacks.
The Barcelona captain spent most of his career at central defence but started at right back. As a result, he was named in the 2002 UEFA Champions League Player of the Year.
Carles was the kind of player who never relaxed when the score was 4-0 in favor of his team and never gave up when the score was 4-0 in favor of the opponent. Puyol finished his career with the national team, playing exactly 100 official matches for it.
