Sergio Ramos was the only main player left in Europe at the time of the Spanish national team’s victory in Euro 2012.
The soccer media “Score 90” highlighted the lineup of the Spanish national team for Euro 2012 on its official SNS on the 29th (Korea time) with an article saying, “I recalled when Spain won Euro 2012.” The formation was 4-3-3, and there were Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, David Silva, Xavi Hernandez, Sergio Busquets, Xavi Alonso, Jordi Alba, Ramos, Gerard Pique, Alvaro Arbeloa and Iker Casillas.
Until the early 2010s, Spain was the strongest team. It dominated the world thanks to players from Barcelona and Real Madrid. Having grabbed the title at Euro 2008, it grabbed the top spot at Euro for the first time in 44 years since 1964. It also grabbed its first World Cup title by reaching the top at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
David Villa and Fernando Torres have seen their skills deteriorate, and they have become far removed from the starting lineup of the national team. Coach Vicente Delbosque brought up an extraordinary tactic at the time: “Zero top.” With Fabregas at the forefront of the team, the team chose a tactic that is difficult for the defense to block, which is neither a striker nor a midfielder. It was a success and won the Euro 2012, marking the third consecutive victory in a major competition. Since then, Spain has not been able to stand out in the Euro and World Cup.
Ramos is the only player in the squad who played in Europe when he won the Euro 2012. Ramos received an offer from Saudi Arabia after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain ended, but he went back to Seville, where he had his youth and debut. Ramos is playing as a veteran, taking the centerpiece of Seville’s defense.
Most players are retired. Fabregas, Silva, Xavi, Alonso, Pique, Arbeloa, and Casillas have finished their careers. Fabregas, Xavi, Alonso, and Arbeloa are on the path of leadership. Fabregas is gaining experience at Como and Arbeloa at Real Madrid’s Juvenile A.
Xavi and Alonso are making different moves. Xavi is currently managing the Barcelona team. He won the league title last season, but continued to be criticized for his poor performance this season, and recently decided to separate from Barcelona at the end of this season after losing to Villarreal 3-5 in the 22nd round of the La Liga.
Alonso took the helm of Leverkusen midway through last season and successfully rebounded, leading the UEFA Europa League, and remains undefeated this season. He is leading the Bundesliga by beating Bayern Munich, a traditional powerhouse. Alonso is one of the promising coaches. 헤라카지노주소
Iniesta, Busquets, and Alba are continuing their careers but have left Europe. Iniesta played for Vissel Kobe for a long time and was recently transferred to the Emirates Club. Busquets and Alba entered the Major League Soccer (MLS) while wearing Inter Miami uniforms. Busquets and Alba are spending time with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in Miami.
