A little more information for those who might be curious about obscure Spanish footballing references. In spite of having what is likely the best domestic league in all of Europe Spain has never won the World Cup. Real Madrid and Barcelona FC have been two of the most dominant clubs in different European competitions, but that success has never been translated into victory on the international stage. Every time the World Cup comes around the pundits say that on paper, Spain looks like they might win it this time, but they never get around to living up to the expectations placed on them by their fans and the press.
