SPANISH FOOTBALL FLASHBACK | HISTORIC PICTURE OF SPAIN 11 AGAINST MALTA 12 - 1 RESULT

Relatively quite on the Spanish Football News front today. All the media is either shouting for Cristiano Ronaldo to be given the FIFA Golden Ball, or updating on all the FC Barcelona injuries like Messi, Alves & Valdes, speculating on the substitute player for injured Real Madrid midfielder Khedira, commenting on the "horrific" Messi jacket at his European Golden Boot presentation or heating up the fierce City of Seville derby this weekend between Sevilla FC - Real Betis in Liga.

With all this presumably not fresh news to most World Soccer fans or regular Blog readers thought I take advantage & post up a Historic Spanish Football National Team starting 11 picture from 1983. A team that made themselves a space in the History of Spanish Football.


These 11 Spanish players
Camacho (Captain), Maceda, Goikoetxea, Gordillo, Señor, Buyo
Carrasco, Victor Muñoz, Santillana, Rincón, Sarabia

were the starting team that defeated Malta 12 - 1 the 21st of December 1983 ( Benito Villamarin Stadium, Seville SPAIN) in the last Group 7 qualifier for the 1984 European Nations Finals. Spain before this match was second to the Netherlands in the Group & needed to win by at least 11 goals to qualify. The match & result is history.

The goalscorers for Spain were:

16' Santillana
26' Santillana
29' Santillana
47' Poli Rincón
57' Poli Rincón
62' Antonio Maceda
63' Antonio Maceda
64' Poli Rincón
76' Santillana
78' Poli Rincón
80' Manu Sarabia
84' Juan Señor

The only goalscorer for Malta was Michael Digiorgio 24th min.
