The Spain national football team (Spanish: Selección de fútbol de España)[a] represents Spain in International association football and is controlled by the Royal Spanish Football Federation, the governing body for football in Spain. The current head coach is Vicente del Bosque. The Spanish side is commonly referred to as La Roja ("The Red [One]"), La Furia Roja ("The Red Fury"), La Furia Española ("The Spanish Fury") or simply La Furia ("The Fury"). Spain became a member of FIFA in 1904 even though the Spanish Football Federation was first established in 1909. Spain's national team debuted in 1920. Since then the Spanish national team have participated in a total of thirteen of nineteen FIFA World Cup and nine of fourteen European Championships. It has a total of 73 international titles in senior and youth teams.
Spain are the reigning World and European champions, having won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012. The national team are currently ranked second in the World Football Elo Ratings and first in the FIFA World Rankings. They also won Euro 2008, making them the only national team so far with three consecutive wins of either the applicable continental championship or the World Cup. Between November 2006 and June 2009 Spain went undefeated for a record-equalling 35 consecutive matches before their loss to the United States, a record shared with Brazil. The team's achievements have led many commentators, experts and former players to consider the current Spanish side among the best ever international sides in world football.
