This is the story of the greatest achievement in the history of international football.

After decades of failure, Spain won the European Championship in 2008 andthen the World Cup in 2010. At Euro 2012 they became the first team to win three consecutive tournament titles.

Graham Hunter was inside the dressing room as the players celebrated after the finals of the World Cup and Euro 2012. His access-all-areas pass at all three tournaments has resulted in remarkable eyewitness accounts and new interviews with star players and the men behind the scenes. Across every day of La Roja’s treble, the author takes you on to the training ground; on the team bus; into the canteen; inside the hotels and on to the pitch.

You’ll hear the team talks that inspired Spain to victory plus the inside stories from Fernando Torres, Xavi, Iker Casillas, David Villa, Cesc Fàbregas, Andrés Iniesta, Gerard Piqué and the others behind an unprecedented era.

The Spanish national men’s football team achieved something unique in 2012 when they won the European Championship for a second consecutive time, with winning of the 2010 World Cup coming between these two successes. This book tells the story of how all of this came about.

Excellent in depth insight to the success of what will probably be international footballs greatest team. A must read for any football fan, also recommend ‘Barca’ also by Graham Hunter, as good or maybe even better!

Although I knew a lot about La Roja’s succesful years 2008 / 2010 / 2012 the book offered a lot of inside stories. Graham Hunter`s book is a classic and written in an inspiring way from a reader’s point of view. Five stars without a doubt. I warmly recommend the book to all friends of football and especially those of spanish national team La Roja.

Words cannot describe the pleasure. A must for everybody who loves soccer and even those who don’t. Greatly told, both proffessionally and as a story. I would love to have a spanish language version for those like me who understand rhe language, Should be helpful for studying spanish for the advanced learner as well.

Brilliant insight in to the recent history of Spanish football, everything you need to know about the national side that made ‘history’. Great interviews with players and ex professionals, not just a book about the game on the pitch but just as much as to what went on behind the scenes.

Great read
