“España, que grande!”
6 July 2012 – That is how our Spanish members from the Comité de Entrenadores de la R.F.E.F. have expressed – on their recently launched web-site www.ce-rfef.es – their enthusiasm about their country’s national team’s triumph over Italy in the EURO 2012 final that took place in the Kyiv Olympic Stadium on 1 July.
Joining the long list of those paying homage to Spain’s footballing supremacy, AEFCA would like to send heartfelt congratulations to “La Roja” and head coach Vicente del Bosque on defending their European champions title.
Winning three of world football’s major trophies (EURO 2008, the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and EURO 2012) in the space of just four years, is an unprecedented feat. The Iberians’ trademark approach to playing the game is truly unmistakeable, if not to say unique.
By the same token, praise and recognition are also due to the national FA President, Ángel María Villar Llona, and the many unnamed coaches and instructors in Spain who, through their long-time commitment to youth and talent promotion, have paved the way for success.
It goes without saying that we have already put our feelers out trying to convince world and European champion coach Vicente del Bosque that he just has to accept our invitation to attend the 33rd AEFCA Symposium in Split in November as one of the Keynote-Speakers.
