- La Furia Roja
- Joined FIFA:
- Vicente Del Bosque
Spain will be looking to join Germany as the most successful country in the history of the European Championship by adding a third title after winning the competition in 1964 and 2008.
La Furia Roja have been the most successful side in the past four years and will go into the tournament as defending champions as well as the current FIFA World Cup holders.
Luis Aragones was the man at the helm when they broke their dry spell by winning the cup in 2008 before Vicente del Bosque took over shortly afterwards.
Spain have managed to keep their squad from their World Cup triumph together and allthe players seem to be hitting form ahead of their quest to become the first team to win three consecutive major tournaments.
This will be their tenth appearance at the tournament and apart from winning it twice, they finished as runners-up in 1984, losing to hosts France in the final.
Del Bosque’s side finished the qualifying stage with a perfect record, winning all eight of their matches but despite carrying the favourites tag they will be faced with some stiff challenges in Group C which includes Croatia, Italy and the Republic of Ireland.
