The current team :facepalm:

You should've clarified that then, because the title was pointing to something else.

I think Spain would easily enter the top 10 national sides of all time though.

It's the best I have watched. But I'm rather young and I did not watch Pele's Brazil winning 3 out of 4 World Cups. They're probably the best ever, but Spain (and Germany 70-80) are up there as well.

In terms of just Europe, it's really debatable now, but Germany probably still edges it simply because they've won more WCs.

Pure footballing ability wise however, Spain are a step above even the best sides from the 70s and 80s.

I think he meant as a team

In Germany we have a cool sports broadcaster that regularly shows the greatest World Cup matches from 1954 on. (I just rewatched the Germany - Hungary final from 1954 and the Germany - Italy semi from 1970 yesterday ^^)

I would take Brazil of 02 and Italy of 06 over this team. This Spain squad are the best since 06, thats it. Theyre great, but not even close to the best of all time. Hell, Spain was arguably even stronger in 08, yet an aged Italy took them all the way to PKs. They are great though, not meaning to take anythng away from them, but Italy beat themsleves tonight wuth the way we played, and Spain is not even close to the bestp of all time.

Indeed, if we are still all around.

The next generation is almost as ridiculous as this current one though, so the rotation possibilities are pretty much endless :bow:.

Better hope so.

Because some of these guys like Isco,Thiago etc are just insane.

The core is intact anyway....Xavi is the only one who may not be there.

Not for me. Quite simply the greatest national team ever with a midfield of the quality that football has never seen before and is unlikely to see again in my lifetime.

Very true. Can we say now that they are better than Pirlo? Can we say that they are comparable to Zidane? Or such comments would be exaggerations?

Of Course. Xavi and Iniesta are on Zidanes level for me.

Xavi and Iniesta have already surpassed Zidane btw and have done it a long time ago. So has Pirlo.


But....
I don't see how Xavi and Iniesta are "better" than Pirlo.

Dani Alves said on Twitter - "What would football be without Xavi and Iniesta!"

That made me tweet - "Messi and C.Ronaldo may score all the goals but Xavi and Iniesta define football."

There can be no doubt that this team has surpassed any other national team. Individual players? I am not sure.

Don't even compare them.

Brazil 1970

Holland 1974

Brazil 1982

All much better.

I love Brazil 1982 more than you know....but....that defense was just a disaster.

They didn't deserve to stand 30 feet away from Zico,Socrates and Falcao.

Don't let disappointment obscure your mind. This Spanish team is better.

The defense was pathetic, but Brazil 1982 was so good they made it work. Italy only managed to beat them by unleashing Gentile on Zico and relying on the blind ref.

Free flowing, free scoring, undoubtedly the best team to not win a tournament, and leagues away from this Spanish team.

You think Iniesta and Xavi can pass? You haven't seen Brazil 1982.

Welcome to the forums but no... Just no.

This Spanish team is WC and one of the best of the 21st century, but they still haven't come close to the teams I've listed.

I cannot agree with that because for me that title goes to Hungary 1954.
