Keeper and also plays for Real Madrid.
IkerCasilias plays for Real Madrid, as he also
captains the Spanish national team.
IkerCasilias, or Saint Iker as he is normally called

He entered the first team of football in 2000, and has
since engraved his name in the history books for
being one of the best goalkeepers in history, as

to block any shot, his jump is as well very
astonishing, as he manages to reach the corner

so much pressure on your shoulders every time you step in

3)What do you think of your chances of beating
Barcelona this season, and about the upcoming 2012
Because I’m excited to see this football game. This
game is going to be the main event of the year.
