Iker Casillas: One of the Best to Put on the Gloves?

Iker Casillas has a laundry list of achievements to his name. His resume towers in front of the net and keeps opposing strikers awake at night.

Here’s a snapshot of everything the Spanish international has done in his career to date:

Captain of Spanish team that won first Euro in 44 years (2008)

Captain of Spanish team that won 2010 World Cup

Golden Glove Award (aka the Lev Yashin Award) 2010

Sixteen seasons at Real Madrid where he helped amass:

5 La Liga titles, 2 Copa del Rey titles, 4 Supercopa de Espana titles, 3 UEFA Champions League titles, 2 UEFA Super Cups, 2 Intercontinental Cups, and the FIFA Club World Cup in 2014

Winner of the IFFHS World’s best Goalkeeper award for 5 consecutive years

UEFA Team of the Year 6 consecutive times

Most Appearances of all time in UEFA champions league

Most Capped Player on the Spanish National team

Most appearances in champions league: 152

It’s no wonder he’s earned the nickname “San Iker” meaning Saint Iker for his godly stats.

Iker is only the third captain in the history of football to lift the World Cup, Champions League, and Euro Championship trophy. The only other two are legends Franz Beckenbauer and Didier Deschamps.
