Record-breaking San Iker
Posted by Nicholas Rigg

Iker Casillas continues to set records for Real Madrid -- hard to believe he's only 31.

"The strikers will face him thinking about what to do. His figure is so large and has grown over time. Rivals would always feel he commands respect and even fear. In one on ones, he is the best. I always want to have Iker on my team as a goalkeeper." - Italy's World Cup-winning goalkeeper and captain Dino Zoff.

High praise indeed from one of football's greatest-ever goalkeepers. Praise that followed Iker Casillas equalling Andoni Zubizarreta as not only the most capped Spanish goalkeeper, but the most capped Spanish footballer of all time last year. A year on and 15 international caps later, the Madrid number one has added another European Championship medal to his collection -- he helped Spain become the first nation to win back-to-back championships -- and guided Los Blancos to La Liga glory, all while smashing another Spanish record -- his own -- in minutes unbeaten for his country.

Great article!
