The Spain national football team (Spanish: Selección Española de Fútbol) represents Spain in international men’s football competitions since 1920. It is governed by the Royal Spanish Football Federation, the governing body for Football in Spain.
Spain are one of the eight national teams to have been crowned worldwide champions, having participated in a total of 15 of 21 FIFA World Cups and qualifying consistently since 1978. Spain has also won three continental titles, having appeared at 10 of 15 UEFA European Championships.
Spain is the only national team with three consecutive major titles, becoming the first European team to win a FIFA World Cup outside of Europe in 2010, as well as the only to win back-to-back European Championships in 2008 and 2012. Because of this, from 2008 to 2013, the national team won the FIFA Team of the Year, the second-most of any nation, behind only Brazil. Also between February 2007 and June 2009, Spain went undefeated for a record-equalling 35 consecutive matches, shared with Brazil. Their achievements have led many experts and commentators to consider the 2008–2012 Spanish squads, the best ever international side in world football.
