Spain Goalkeeper - Iker Casillas

His football career started 30 years back and he is appreciative to make a career out of something that he is passionate about and makes him happy.

Iker Casillas won the Champions League with Real Madrid and also played an instrumental role in their five Spain La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey triumphs, the Spanish Super Cup four times as well as the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Intercontinental Cup and two occasions each.
