Gonzalez Blanco Raul



Raśl Gonzalez
Raul is Spain's golden boy and reckoned to be the best Spanish footballer since Emilio Butragueno.

Having recently married top Spanish model Mamen Sanz, the pair are Spain's answer to David Beckham and Posh Spice.

He combines explosive shooting with a subtle technique and an incredible ability to turn defenders.

Raul joined Real Madrid from rivals Atletico and picked up two league titles and a Champions League medal.

He was ignored for Euro 1996 and had to wait until October of the same year to make his debut against the Czech Republic but is now a permanent fixture despite disappointing at France 98.

Was top scorer in the qualifying rounds for Euro 2000 with 10 goals in eight matches, including four against Austria and a hat-trick against San Marino.
