Goalkeeper! Iker Casillas!! Iker Casillas’ relationship with Real Madrid dates back to 1990, the same year he began working his way up through the ranks until finally earning a starting role with the First Team in the 1999/00 season.
Phillipp Lahm!! Lahm is considered one of the best full backs in the world, and was included in the World Cup team of the tournament in 2006 and 2010, the UEFA Team of the Tournament in 2008 and 2012 and in the FIFA Team of the Year 2008. Although Lahm is right- footed, he is able to play on both sides of the pitch. He often cuts from the flank to the inside of the pitch to either shoot or pass. He is well known for his pace, dribbling and precise tackling abilities as well as his small stature, giving him the nickname the "Magic Dwarf".
Iniesta Iniesta dovetails beautifully with teammate Xavi Hernandez. Both products of Barca’s La Masia youth academy, the duo were pillars of Spain’s 2010 World Cup triumph and have won two Champions Leagues with the Catalan giants.
messi By the age of 21, Messi had received Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year nominations. The following year in 2009 he won both the Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year, and won the inaugural FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2010 and 2011.He also won the 2010–11 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award. Messi is the fourth football player to win three Ballons d'Or. His playing style and small stature have drawn comparisons to Diego Maradona, who himself declared Messi as his "successor".
