Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas has sets a unique record after lifting the Club World Cup…
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has become the first player in football history to captain his team to eight different trophies, after lifting the Club World Cup on Saturday.
By lifting the golden trophy after his 700th game for Real, Casillas has now won the Club World Cup, La Liga, Copa del Rey, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup, Champions League, World Cup and the European Championships.
Reports in the Daily Mail confirm that the 33-year-old can now also claim to have won every competition he has ever played in after goals from Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale secured victory in Marrakesh, and saw off San Lorenzo.
Casillas was only made Madrid captain in 2010, but quickly set about his record tally. Madrid beat Barcelona 1-0 to win the Copa del Rey in the summer of 2011, before he added the La Liga title and the Spanish Super Cup the following year.
In 2014 he lifted the UEFA Super Cup, the Champions League and another Copa del Rey in a triumphant year for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, before completing the set this weekend.
His three international victories came in 2008, 2010 and 2012, with Casillas lifting the World Cup and two European Championship titles as Spain recorded consecutive victories.
