The Spanish football national team won the long-awaited first World Cup on the 11th of July 2010. The victory was the triumph of a team, but also of an entire country. Within this successful event there are stories that talk about effort and striving to be better that highlight the characteristics of a team that was destined to become legend. The national team arrived in South Africa with Vicente del Bosque serving as its coach and with the Eurocup 2008 victory still fresh in their minds, but “La Roja” quickly lost trust after losing to Switzerland in their first World Cup match. However, they were able to continue thanks to the high quality football they possessed and their clear objective: to make history.
