Raul Gonzalez
FACTFILE
Spain striker Raul
Born: 27/06/77
Club: Real Madrid
Position: Striker
Debut: 09/10/96 v
Spanish superstar Raul began his career at Atletico Madrid before the closure of their youth side forced him to join cross-town rivals Real.

He has gone on to become Spain's most successful footballer.

He has already won four La Liga championships and three Champions League titles as part of the all-conquering Real side.

But Raul's international career has been blighted by poor performances at major tournaments.

However, Spain's greatest goalscorer will again carry the nation's hopes on his shoulders as they bid to win their first international silverware since 1964.

The prolific striker recently pledged his future to Real but was subject to a world record bid of 71.4m from Chelsea.


Did you know? Raul is married to top Spanish model Mamen Sanz.
